Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Probation
    issued in TN, 2011


    Probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Ruchee’s comment: “Probation successfully completed.”
