The Supreme Court of Tennessee today entered an order suspending Angela Joy Hopson from the practice of law for a period of two years, with 30 days served as active suspension and the remainder on probation. Hopson is required to engage a practice monitor during the probationary period and to pay the costs of the disciplinary proceeding. The Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline against Hopson based upon one complaint of ethical misconduct arising from her representation of a criminal defendant. A hearing panel determined that she failed to properly manage communication with her client who was incarcerated, causing the client and his family to contact the trial court on multiple occasions with their complaints.
