The Supreme Court of Tennessee today disbarred Shelby County lawyer Paul James Springer from the practice of law.  A petition for discipline consisting of three complaints was filed May 29, 2015. After a hearing upon the disciplinary petitions, a hearing panel determined Springer failed to reasonably communicate with his clients; made false representations to the court, his clients, and opposing counsel; failed to provide his clients with copies of their file; failed to comply with court orders; failed to issue summonses in a timely manner; engaged in fraud, deceit and misrepresentation; failed to file appropriate documents in court; failed to file timely appeals; filed frivolous appeals; and made material misrepresentations to the Board of Professional Responsibility.
