Failure to File the Annual Fee and/or IOLTA Report

The Tennessee Supreme Court has issued a number of orders suspending Tennessee-licensed attorneys who have not paid their 2018 annual registration fee to the Board of Professional Responsibility and/or have not filed a mandatory compliance statement that eligible client funds are held in accounts participating in the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program. The court also has issued orders for those attorneys who filed their IOLTA report but did not pay their fee, and those attorneys who paid their fee but did not file the IOLTA report. Attorneys who have since complied with requirements, and for whom notices has been received from the court, will be noted below as reinstated.

The TBA provides this information as a member service and not as an official record of an attorney’s status. Interested individuals should check the Board of Professional Responsibility for the official status of a Tennessee licensed attorney.
