Memphis lawyer Timothy Darnell Flowers was suspended on Aug. 1 for three years, retroactive to June 27, 2010. He also was ordered to pay restitution to former clients. The Tennessee Supreme Court found that Flowers, who already was on suspension from orders entered in 2010 and 2011, committed ethical misconduct while representing clients from 2005 to 2009. Specific violations included failing to (1) advise a client of a court date, (2) file a brief in support of a client’s appeal, (3) advise a client of a change of venue and (4) introduce proof regarding relocation in an asylum matter. In each of these situations, his actions resulted in the dismissal of cases or negative action being taken against the clients. Download the BPR notice.
