Veteran Lawyer’s Inaction on Attorney Fee Dispute Case Leads to Disbarment

“Parris’s continuous inaction at each stage of the litigation resulted in significant harm to Chaddsford in the form of a $75,000 default judgment and court-imposed sanctions of $1,225 in attorneys’ fees with post judgment interest. Parris took no action to vacate the default judgment against Chaddsford and did not notify Chaddsford of the default judgment until approximately five months later,” Justice Angela M. Eaves wrote on behalf of the unanimous court.
