State expands fund for those cheated by attorneys

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - A fund established more than 30 years ago to protect the victims of unscrupulous lawyers is being revised to offer even more protections.

The Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection is supported by annual fees paid by Tennessee attorneys.

According to the Administrative Office of the Courts, the fund has always collected a fee from attorneys licensed by the state of Tennessee, but beginning in October the fee will be collected from every attorney practicing in Tennessee, regardless of where they are licensed.

Also beginning in October, clients who were cheated by an attorney will have three years to make a claim, rather than the current one year limit.
