Attorney Lawrence Hammet II of Nashville, TN; ethical goblin


The state of Tennessee unfortunately presented Lawrence Buford Hammet II with a law license in 1989 after he graduated from Samford University School of Law.


The Board of Professional Responsibility found Larry guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Withdrew disputed funds from his client trust account and paid himself a fee that exceeded the amount to which his client allegedly agreed
  • Client filed a civil suit against Larry that was appealed after trial
  • Appeals court found that Larry failed to keep the disputed funds in his trust account until the dispute was resolved and that he asked for unreasonable fees
  • Appeals court awarded judgment of more than $67,000 and remanded the case to the trial court for a determination of pre-judgment interest
  • The trial court subsequently awarded interest of more than $22,000 to Larry’s prior client [victim]

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Tennessee Supreme Court punished Larry by gifting him with a complimentary censure.


As we speak (ca. April 2022, Larry practices his so-called brand of law at 4525 Harding Pike in Nashville, Tennessee.
