Blount County lawyer Lawrence Emory Little today received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. In Little’s role as fiduciary, he failed to diligently administer trust and estate matters and did not adequately communicate with the beneficiaries. He failed to safeguard trust and estate funds collected on behalf of beneficiaries and failed to keep adequate records of the administration of such matters. Little also failed to comply with an agreed court order requiring that he provide his complete file to successor counsel and provide a full and accurate accounting of an estate within 30 days.
