On April 16, Shelby County lawyer Lewis K. Garrison was publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court. A petition for discipline was filed against Garrison on June 20, 2017. Garrison represented a client in a personal injury claim arising from an automobile accident. He provided financial assistance to his client by paying the deposit so that the client might obtain a rental car and by advancing money to the client from a settlement with which to pay the client’s rent. Garrison had been disciplined on four prior occasions for improperly providing financial assistance to clients. A hearing panel found that Garrison had violated the Rules of Professional Conduct and recommended that he be publicly censured.
