Middle Tennessee lawyer disbarred, ordered to pay $320k to victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A Sumner County lawyer has been disbarred and ordered to pay $320,000 to his victims.
Former Sumner County attorney Andy Allman was disbarred by the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Supreme Court of Tennessee. The decision was made effective on Tuesday and he has been ordered to pay $320,050 in restitution.
Allman faced 79 separate complaints from clients and he was found to have "intentionally and systematically failed to provide" services for which he was retained. The board found Allman used funds from his clients for his personal and business use instead.
The board also ruled Allman "failed to notify his clients of his temporary suspension, engaged in the unauthorized practice of law and failed to respond to the Board regarding a disciplinary complaint."
Allman is accused of stealing from a teen with a catastrophic brain injury and at least 24 others. The Hendersonville lawyer practiced from 1996 until his law license was suspended on September 9, 2016.
