A public censure has been imposed on a Tennessee attorney who appeared in a Mississippi court without a Mississippi license.
He did not seek pro hac vice admission and did not fully comply with such admission rules. He also had failed to disclose the participation of his local counsel to his client until the case was transferred to Circuit Court.
Finally, he charged a non-refundable retainer without a written agreement.
The sanction was imposed by the Board of Professional Responsibility. (Mike Frisch)
