The Supreme Court of Tennessee has temporarily suspended the law license of Jeffrey Andrew Stinnett pursuant to Section 4.3 of Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9. The Board of Professional Responsibility petitioned the court to temporarily suspend Mr. Stinnett’s law license due to his failure to respond to a complaint of ethical misconduct.
Effective June 29, 2012, Mr. Stinnett is precluded from accepting any new cases and he must cease representing existing clients by July 29, 2012.
After July 29, 2012, Mr. Stinnett shall not use any indicia of lawyer, legal assistant, or law clerk nor maintain a presence where the practice of law is conducted.
Mr. Stinnett must notify all clients being represented in pending matters, as well as co-counsel and opposing counsel of the Supreme Court’s Order suspending his law license. Section 18 of Supreme Court Rule 9 requires Mr. Stinnett is to deliver to all clients any papers or property to which they are entitled.
This suspension remains in effect until dissolution or modification by the Supreme Court. Mr. Stinnett may for good cause request dissolution or modification of the suspension by petition to the Supreme Court.
