Shelby County attorney William Steven Taylor was publicly censured yesterday by the Tennessee Supreme Court. Taylor held the proceeds of a client’s workers compensation settlement in a trust account and failed to pay one of his client’s health care providers in a timely manner. He failed to retain the funds in his trust account and kept inadequate trust accounting records. For that Taylor must engage a practice monitor, undergo an audit of his trust account, replace funds in his trust account, open a new trust account and obtain one additional hour of CLE in the mechanics of trust accounting.
