A Rogersville attorney has been suspended and his license to practice law has been placed on probation for misconduct and neglect of clients' cases.

A news release issued late Monday says Tennessee's Board of Professional Responsibility suspended the law license of Gerald T. Eidson, of Rogersville, for a year effective March 4. After three months, Eidson will be allowed to resume practicing law on probation. During the nine months on probation, Eidson must report to a practice monitor, and earn four hours of continuing education credits in law practice management.

The release states Eidson neglected clients and failed to communicate with them. The board found that his actions constituted violations of Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 8, Rules of Professional Conduct.

Eidson was also ordered to pay the costs associated with the disciplinary proceedings against him.

Sounds like Eidson's just a bad attorney, unfortunately Rogersville is "blessed" with more than our share of them.

Can any of you honestly say that you have never made a mistake? We are all human... And we screw up sometimes. Before you go picking the splinter out of someone else's eye, why don't you worry about the 2x4" in your own. Gerald Eidson is a decent man and a good father who doesn't deserve criticism from any of you. Maybe he has made a few mistakes, haven't we all? The difference is our mistakes are not published in the newspaper for the world to see.

Correction: Your mistakes are published in the newspaper if you get arrested, betray the public truct, or if you are an attoreny who doesn't fulfill your obligations to your client. Gerald deserves to be publicly scrutinized. This isn't the first time he has come up for discipline.

You are either the man himself or a family member because nobody else would take up for a bad attorney.

Correction,Gerald Eidson has had a long and illustrious reputation for laziness/not doing what he is paid to do in his practice of law in the local area and it must have reached new heights to have gotten to the point of having his licsense pulled for 3 months by the Bar.

He is one of the sorriest lawyers this town has ever had! I had to use him once because my sons sperm donor was taking me to court for visitation, this guy is an alcoholic sells drugs now and i had witnesses and everything telling the judge he was a drunk back then, well Eidson just let the lawyer rip thru my witnesses without evan trying to help me or my son, my son had to endure his abuse for maybe 4 or 5 weekends then i went to pick him up one night at 8oclock and my son was crying his eyes were swollen and he had red finger prints around his neck! So i took my son to the police dept and they took pictures and guess what?? my son never spent another weekend at that bastards house again! But thank you Eidson and Ex judge Holcomb for letting my son get abused by a drunk when i had witnesses there to prove it and you wouldnt take the time to listen! All these lawyers here in this town are just out for the money, especially Gerald Eidson! I wouldnt let him handle a case for my dogs! I learned the hard way by using this man! But my son had to pay the price for Holcomb and Eidsons stupidity!
