Hawkins County lawyer Daniel Graham Boyd was today publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court. On June 22, 2018, the Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline alleging that Boyd failed to diligently represent his clients in a boundary line dispute and failed to adequately communicate with them. Boyd entered into a conditional guilty plea admitting that his actions violated the Rules of Professional Conduct. A public censure is a rebuke and warning to the attorney, but it does not affect the attorney’s ability to practice law.
