Court: TN Supreme Court

Attorneys 1:

Connie Reguli, Brentwood, Tennessee, Pro Se.

Attorneys 2:

Krisann Hodges, Brentwood, Tennessee, for the appellee, Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.

Judge(s): LEE

A Board of Professional Responsibility hearing panel determined that an attorney violated multiple rules of professional conduct and imposed a suspension to be served on probation subject to certain conditions. The trial court affirmed the hearing panel?s findings but modified the sanction by requiring the attorney to pay restitution, shortening the term of the suspension and probation, and eliminating and modifying other conditions of probation. Upon careful consideration, we affirm the trial court?s order of restitution, but otherwise reinstate the decision of the hearing panel.
