CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Montgomery County lawyer has been suspended from practicing law by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

The Leaf-Chronicle (https://leafne.ws/1JZKK0w ) reports that John Edward Herbison of Clarksville was suspended on Wednesday because officials said he accepted a non-refundable $7,500 fee and failed to prepare an application for clemency and reasonably communicate with his clients.

The clients say they terminated their agreement with Herbison when they found out the application had not been prepared, but he refused to refund the fee.

Officials say Herbison has been suspended for two years from practicing law with 60 days to serve as an active suspension until the $7,500 is returned to the client.

As part of the terms of the probation, Herbison will have to hire a monitor for his practice.
