The Tennessee Supreme Court on Oct. 2 suspended Rutherford County Lawyer Carla Ann Kent Ford from the practice of law for five years and ordered her to pay restitution to two former clients as a condition of reinstatement. The Board of Professional Responsibility filed three complaints of misconduct against Ford alleging that she failed to communicate with or diligently represent clients, failed to adequately notify clients of her suspension, and in two of the cases failed to provide written fee agreements. The board also found that she failed to respond to the charges.
