July 21, 2021

MARYVILLE - On July 20, 2021, Jacob Edward Erwin, an attorney licensed to practice law in Tennessee, received a Public Censure from the Board of Professional Responsibility of the Tennessee Supreme Court.

Mr. Erwin utilized trust account funds for fulfillment of a personal financial obligation. While no clients or third parties were harmed, Mr. Erwin’s conduct constitutes a breach of his fiduciary obligation regarding client funds and property. By these acts, Jacob Edward Erwin, has violated Rule of Professional Conduct 1.15 (safekeeping property and funds) and is hereby Publicly Censured for this violation.

A Public Censure is a rebuke and warning to the attorney, but it does not affect the attorney’s ability to practice law.
