LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court’s Committee on Professional Conduct has accepted the voluntary surrender of a Fort Smith attorney’s law license after he admitted taking $100,000 from his firm for personal use.

The Supreme Court’s order issued Thursday agrees to the surrender to allow former attorney Michael Redd to “avoid the expense, stress, and publicity of further addressing his misconduct.” Redd wrote in a motion to the court that he joined the firm Robertson, Beasley, Shipley & Redd in 2014, and that he became responsible for the firm’s finances.

Redd said in the filing that he had made restitution to the firm, but he believed the attorney discipline committee was likely to seek disbarment.
