Jimmy Vallejo Delgado, an attorney licensed to practice law in Tennessee and Texas, was disbarred by the Tennessee Supreme Court and ordered to make restitution in the amount of $96,826 to former clients. On June 1, 2012, the Board of Professional Responsibility filed a petition for discipline against Delgado based on his representation of clients in a Georgia wrongful death case. A hearing panel found Delgado never informed his clients that he was not licensed to practice law in Georgia. The court also found that he never met with his clients personally, settled the case without his clients’ knowledge or consent, and failed to promptly remit settlement funds to his clients.
