Knox County lawyer Brennan Patrick Lenihan today received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility. In three separate cases, Lenihan engaged in a pattern of neglecting client matters. In the first case, Lenihan ignored his client’s attempts to obtain information about his case as well as requests from the Board’s Consumer Assistance Program during this time period. In the second case, Lenihan allowed deadlines that were important to his clients to pass, he did not provide them with draft pleadings as they requested, and he did not reply to a number of their text messages inquiring as to the status of the matter. In the third case, he did not complete his client’s amendment to a custody order, he ignored her numerous attempts to communicate with him, including her request for her file and a refund of fees paid, and he ignored inquiries from the Board’s Consumer Assistance Program. In addition, Lenihan failed to respond timely to a disciplinary complaint.
