The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Memphis lawyer Paul James Springer Sr. for two years and 60 days, and directed him to pay $10,000 in restitution, engage a practice monitor, complete six hours of continuing education and obtain professional liability insurance. The suspension will take effect July 3 and remain in place until the court orders reinstatement. The action was taken based on two complaints. In the first case, the court found that Springer used his trust account to pay personal and business expenses. In the second case, the court found that he failed to pay a client's medical bills out of settlement funds and refused to release funds to the client. Read the BPR notice.
