The Supreme Court of Tennessee today disbarred Aschalew Guadie Nigussie of Decatur, Georgia, from the practice of law in Tennessee and ordered him to pay restitution to one client as a condition of reinstatement. A petition for discipline consisting of two complaints of misconduct against Nigussie was filed August 14, 2017. The complaints allege Nigussie accepted fees from clients, performed little if any work on their behalf and abandoned the cases when he ceased communicating with them. Nigussie did not respond to the petition for discipline and an order for default judgment was entered against him.
