Hawkins County lawyer reinstated
May 14, 2022

On May 13, 2022, the Supreme Court of Tennessee reinstated John Stephen Anderson to the practice of law, effective immediately.

Mr. Anderson was suspended by the Supreme Court of Tennessee for six (6) years on December 22, 2015. On October 22, 2021, Mr. Anderson filed a Petition for Reinstatement to the practice of law pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 30.4.

A Hearing Panel found that Mr. Anderson complied with the terms and conditions of his suspension and further found that he demonstrated the moral qualifications, competency and learning in the law required for the practice of law and that his resumption of the practice of law will not be detrimental to the integrity or standing of the bar or administration of justice, or subversive to the public interest.

As conditions of his reinstatement, Mr. Anderson must engage a practice monitor for two (2) years, enroll in the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program to undergo an evaluation and comply with the terms of any recommended monitoring agreement and complete three (3) additional hours of CLE on ethics and professionalism during 2022.
