Bradley County Lawyer Censured

Monday, October 21, 2013

James Franklin Logan, Jr., an attorney licensed to practice law in Tennessee, received a public censure last Wednesday, from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court.

Mr. Logan, on behalf of a limited partnership in which he and his client were principals, attempted to foreclose on his client’s residence to recover monies the client owed to the partnership.  In so doing, Mr. Logan violated Rules 1.7 and 1.8, because his actions were adverse to the interests of his client.  Additionally, Mr. Logan violated Rule 1.6 by discussing his client’s finances with his client’s ex-wife without his client’s consent. 

By these acts, Mr. Logan, violated Rule of Professional Conduct 1.6 (confidentiality), 1.7 (conflict of interest, general rule) and 1.8 (conflict of interest, prohibited transactions) and is hereby publicly censured for these violations.

A public censure is a rebuke and warning to the attorney, but it does not affect the attorney’s ability to practice law.
