Monroe County lawyer censured

An attorney in Monroe County, Tenn., has been publicly censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

Barry Keith Maxwell was disciplined for failing to promptly refund an advance payment of fees to a client when it became clear that the work for which he had been retained was unnecessary, according to a news release from the Board of Professional Responsibility.

The action violated the Rules of Professional Conduct related to terminating representation, the release stated.

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