Lexington attorney April Rebecca Mims was suspended from the practice of law on Tuesday for six months and then for an indefinite period until completion of two specific conditions: (1) that she sign a new monitoring agreement with the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program and be fully compliant with it for no fewer than six consecutive months, and (2) that she participate in the Ethics and Professionalism course offered by the Board of Professional Responsibility. Both conditions must be met by Dec. 31 or Mims will face revocation of her conditional admission to the practice of law. Mims was admitted in 2012 pursuant to a conditional admission order, which requires her to remain compliant with her TLAP agreement. Download the BPR release.
