Hamilton County Lawyer Censured

Hamilton County lawyer Justin Grey Woodward today received a public censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court. Woodward represented a client in a domestic relations matter, during which Woodward created a conflict of interest by exchanging sexually explicit text messages and emails with his client. There was a significant risk that Woodward’s personal interests materially limited his representation of the client. Woodward violated the Rules of Professional Conduct and is now publicly censured for this violation.
