Knox County lawyer temporarily suspended
May 6, 2024, 2:40 p.m.

On May 6, 2024, the Supreme Court of Tennessee temporarily suspended James Patrick Henry from the practice of law upon finding that Mr. Henry failed to respond to the Board of Professional Responsibility concerning six (6) complaints of misconduct. Section 12.3 of Supreme Court Rule 9 provides for the immediate summary suspension of an attorney’s license to practice law in cases of an attorney’s failure to respond.

Mr. Henry is immediately precluded from accepting any new cases, and he must cease representing existing clients by June 5, 2024. After June 5, 2024, Mr. Henry shall not use any indicia of lawyer, legal assistant, or law clerk nor maintain a presence where the practice of law is conducted.

Mr. Henry 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. Mr. Henry is required to deliver to all clients any papers or property to which they are entitled.

Mr. Henry must comply with the requirements of Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Sections 28 and 12.3(d), regarding the obligations and responsibilities of temporarily suspended attorneys and the procedure for reinstatement.

This suspension remains in effect until dissolution or modification by the Supreme Court. Mr. Henry may, for good cause, request dissolution or modification of the suspension by petition to the Supreme Court.
