Humphreys County lawyer James Phillips Bradley was suspended on June 25 for allegedly signing his client’s name to a petition in a child-endangerment matter and notarizing the signature as that of the client. Thereafter, he filed the petition with the trial court and obtained an ex parte custody order. The trial court dismissed the petition upon learning that Bradley had signed the client’s name. In addition to suspension, Bradley must attend an ethics workshop and pay the board’s costs, expenses and court costs. Download the BPR notice.
