WILSON COUNTY LAWYER SUSPENDED
On April 15, 2011, Mark Wesley Henderson of Mount Juliet, Tennessee, was suspended from the
practice of law for two (2) years by the Tennessee Supreme Court and ordered to pay restitution to a former
client. Mr. Henderson is already serving a six (6) month suspension from a prior disciplinary matter.
On January 19, 2010, a Petition for Discipline was filed against Mr. Henderson containing one
complaint of disciplinary misconduct. A Hearing Panel determined that Mr. Henderson failed to file an answer
to a countersuit, failed to respond to discovery requests despite promising opposing counsel that the responses
had been mailed, and failed to properly communicate with his client about the status of her case and her
requests for billing statements. Further, when the client terminated Mr. Hendersonís services, he did not
properly withdraw from the case.
Mr. Hendersonís actions violate the following Rules of Professional Conduct: 1.1, Competence; 1.3,
Diligence; 1.4, Communication; 1.5, Fees; 8.1, Bar Admission and Disciplinary Matters; and 8.4, Misconduct.
Mr. Henderson must comply with Sections 18 and 19 of Rule 9, Rules of the Supreme Court, regarding
the obligations and responsibilities of suspended attorneys.
