Memphis Lawyer Javier Michael Bailey was disbarred by the Tennessee Supreme Court today and ordered to pay restitution to 17 people totaling $29,867. Bailey entered a conditional guilty plea that he failed to properly communicate with clients, failed to exercise appropriate diligence on client’s cases, failed to appear for a hearing, failed to follow court orders and made misrepresentations to the court. He also was held in criminal contempt in three cases and sentenced to serve time in jail and/or pay a fine due to his failure to timely file briefs and comply with court directives.
