Sullivan County lawyer Howard Robert Clyde Orfield was today disbarred by the Tennessee Supreme Court. Prior to his disbarment, Orfield was suspended on Oct. 6, 2017, and had not been reinstated from this suspension. After accepting fee payments for representation in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case, Orfield ceased communicating with his client and failed to perform the services for which he was paid. Orfield later offered to refund the full balance of the fee paid by the client, but has not done so.
