Angela Joy Hopson of Jackson was suspended from the practice of law on Jan. 30 for one year; however, the entire suspension is probated subject to certain conditions. Hopson must engage a practice monitor for the period of her probation, comply with the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Programs and pay the Board of Professional Responsibility’s costs and expenses within 90 days. In the first complaint, Hopson failed to properly communicate with her client. In the second, she was found in contempt for her failure to file a timely brief and to follow the prior orders of the court regarding the filing of a status report. Download the BPR notice.
