Aggressive Billing Tactics Lead to Disbarment

A dispute over $40 ends with a Georgia attorney losing his license

Lawyers have all sorts of billing arrangements with clients, but the Georgia Supreme Court decided that a Marietta attorney's methods were so bad that he should be disbarred.

Bobby Glenn Adkins Jr. charged clients for the time he spent defending himself from grievances they filed against him with the State Bar of Georgia's discipline authorities, according to the high court's March 1 ruling.

In a telephone interview, Adkins denied the allegations, saying, "All I was trying to do was get paid for what I'd earned."
