Attorney William Wheatley of Pigeon Forge, TN; ethical leprechaun

The state of Tennessee provided William Lee Wheatley with a law license in 2003 after he graduated from the University of Tennessee Law School.
The Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility found William guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to act with due diligence (slacker)
  2. Failed to communicate with clients
  3. Failed to expedite litigation
  4. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, dishonesty, deceit or misrepresentation
  5. Accepted legal fees while his law license was suspended
  6. Failed to repay loans to a client’s father
  7. Failed to take reasonable steps to protect client interests after he was fired
  8. Failed to refund portion of unearned fees to clients
In addition to the above misconduct, William pleaded guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment. The Board ordered William to make restitution of $14,870 to his former clients (victims)
As a consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Tennessee Supreme Court punished William by gifting him with a complimentary 120-day suspension of his law license.
As we speak (ca. December 2012) William practices at 611 South Asbury Drive in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
