A Nashville attorney suspended for two years in the mid-1990s for "neglect and failure to communicate with clients" has again been suspended, though this time temporarily.
Almose A. Thompson, whose law office is at 404 James Robertson Parkway, was suspended last week from practicing law in Tennessee after December 2. He was forbidden to accept new clients after Nov. 2.
The Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee found earlier this month that Mr. Thompson failed to comply with conditions of his re-instatement following a suspension in 1993.
He was suspended in 1993 following his submittal of a conditional guilty plea to 26 complaints involving neglect and failure to communicate with clients. The suspension order called for Mr. Thompson to attend nine hours of continuing legal education (CLE) on law-office management and to make restitution arising from his conduct.
The recent suspension was based on his failure to respond to a Supreme Court order in June 1999 that he attend six hours of CLE, participate and adhere to the Tennessee Bar Association's Law Office Practice Management program and that he participate in the Nashville Bar Association's mentoring program.
