Hamblen County lawyer Andrew Nicholas Wilson was censured on Monday by the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. The action was taken based on three complaints filed against Wilson after he left the private practice of law to take a job in state government. Wilson indicated that he would complete his existing cases, but he ceased communicating with his clients and did not perform the work he was retained to do. The board found that he failed to act with reasonable diligence, failed to communicate with his clients, failed to expedite litigation, and essentially abandoned his clients. His actions violated Rules of Professional Responsibility 1.3, 1.4, 1.16 and 3.2. Download the BPR notice
