Jumping The Gun Gets Attorney Censured

An attorney was publicly censured by the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility for opening a law office and setting up a website promoting his legal services prior to completing the swearing in requirements of governing rules.

The attorney was initially licensed in Mississippi in 2005. He took and passed the Tennessee bar exam in July 2008 but was not sworn in until May 2009.

The misconduct took place prior to the swearing in. (Mike Frisch)
