Knox County lawyer censured
January 10, 2022

KNOX COUNTY - On January 10, 2022, Daniel Clyde Fielden, II, an attorney licensed to practice law in Tennessee, received a Public Censure from the Supreme Court of Tennessee and was ordered to pay court costs and the disciplinary expenses and costs incurred by the Board of Professional Responsibility.

Mr. Fielden represented a client in a divorce action and failed to represent his client in a diligent manner, failed to expedite her hearing, failed to properly respond to the client’s termination of representation, and failed to communicate with his client. The Hearing Panel found his conduct violated Rules of Professional Conduct 1.3 (Diligence), 1.4 (Communication), 1.16 (Declining or Terminating Representation), 3.2 (Expediting Litigation) and 8.4(d) (Misconduct).

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