A Lake County lawyer has been temporarily suspended by order of the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
Guy S. Davis was temporarily suspended Monday from the practice law upon a finding that he allegedly “is in substantial noncompliance with his monitoring agreement with the Tennessee Lawyer’s Assistance Program,” according to the court’s Board of Professional Responsibility.
Davis is precluded from accepting any new cases and he must cease representing existing clients by Nov. 10. After Nov. 10, he “shall not use any indicia of lawyer, legal assistant or law clerk nor maintain a presence where the practice of law is conducted.”
According to the court’s order, he must notify all clients being represented in pending matters, as well as co-counsel and opposing counsel, of the order suspending his law license. Section 18 of Supreme Court Rule 9 requires Davis to deliver to all clients any papers or property to which they are entitled.
The suspension remains in effect until dissolution or modification by the Supreme Court. Davis may, for good cause, request dissolution or modification of the suspension by petition to the court, according to a news release announcing the action.
