Knox County lawyer Roy Patrick Neuenschwander was suspended from the practice of law on Monday for misconduct. After settling a personal injury case, Neuenschwander’s borrowed money from his client’s settlement proceeds. After his client passed away, Neuenschwander agreed to represent her son in connection with her estate. He then signed a promissory note in which he agreed to re-pay the loan to the son but did not advise either client of a conflict of interest and the need to obtain independent legal advice, nor did he obtain the clients’ written, informed consent.
