The Supreme Court of Tennessee yesterday suspended Lisa Zarzour Bowman from the practice of law for one year with 30 days being an active suspension and the remainder served on probation with the appointment of a practice monitor. In addition, she must pay the Board’s costs in the disciplinary proceeding. On Aug. 24, 2016, a Petition for Discipline containing one complaint was filed against Bowman alleging lack of diligence, lack of communication and incompetent representation. After a trial upon the merits, the hearing panel found she failed to timely prepare and file documents with the trial court for a period of nearly 15 months, failed to reasonably communicate with her client regarding changes made in the final decree of divorce previously approved by the client, and filed a final decree of divorce not approved by the client.
