The Tennessee Board on Professional Responsibility has issued public censures in three unrelated matters.
An attorney engaged in a conflict of interest by representing a husband accused of first degree murder while also representing the wife who was charged with conspiracy to commit the same offense. He did not have a written fee agreement and had not explained the conflict to the clients.
An attorney was censured for neglect of an accident case.
Finally, an attorney who had practiced in Georgia for seven years while suspended administrative in Tennessee and who had no other active license was censured for unauthorized practice. (Mike Frisch)
