Shelby County attorney Martin Alan Weiss was disbarred by the Tennessee Supreme Court on Tuesday. As conditions of his reinstatement, Weiss must make restitution in the amount of $57,769. On Nov. 15, 2018, a petition for discipline was filed against Weiss alleging that he mis-appropriated funds from 18 personal injury settlements. When distributing the money upon settling these clients’ cases, Weiss withheld an amount sufficient to pay what each client owed to the clinic where they had been treated. Rather than paying the money that had been withheld for the clinic, Weiss kept the money for his personal use.
