Shelby County lawyer Urura Mayers on Monday received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. Mayers presented a check drawn on her trust account to a court clerk’s office for payment of a filing fee before client funds covering the cost of the filing fee had been deposited into her trust account, resulting in an overdraft.  Mayers also failed to properly supervise a legal assistant who used the trust account to pay personal expenses.
