This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Fully probated suspension means an attorney is technically suspended but may still practice law. The State monitors the lawyer's activities during the suspension to make sure that he or she does not repeat the behavior.

Mr. Brinkley FAILED TO PERFORM HIS RESPONSIBILITIES AS AN ATTORNEY. He failed to complete interrogatories. He failed to appear at depositions. He failed to competently represent our case. He failed to notify us (his clients) about depositions. He failed to communicate with us in a timely, meaningful manner, sometimes ignoring for many weeks (sometimes for MONTHS) our repeated attempts to reach him, our questions, our phone voicemail messages, our emails, even our certified letters.
Mr. Brinkley has been suspended by the Texas State Bar (TWICE, for more than 10 years total) for treating other clients the same way. He is currently under such suspension ("probationary") by the Texas State Bar, from 2012-2018. During BOTH of his suspensions (2005-2010 & 2012-2018), his misconduct and failures to properly represent his clients continued with other clients.
Mr. Brinkley's failure to appear at depositions ultimately caused our case to be dismissed. As a result, and combined with his other failures to perform properly, we lost our case and so we lost our home due to a wrongful foreclosure. (We did not miss ANY payments after March 18, 2010, when Bank of America enrolled us in the MHA HAMP Program. Bank of America promised in writing NOT to foreclose if we made all of our MHA HAMP payments, which we did. Bank of America's foreclosure was entirely wrongful and breached their written agreement with us under the MHA HAMP Program. If we had been competently represented, we would NOT have lost our home.)
We believe that Mr. Brinkley's repeated and frequent misconduct has made a mockery of the State Bar's "probationary" suspensions and reprimands and that Mr. Brinkley should LOSE HIS LICENSE TO PRACTICE LAW in Texas.
DO NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY!

I've used Mr. Brinkley on several occasions and have recommended him to family and friends who have also been very pleased with his help.
