On August 27, 2015, Steve Combs was suspended from the practice of law for three years.  Combs was found to have failed to timely complete title insurance applications and premium information, and failed to inform his client of his failure to complete the title opinion and disburse the title insurance premium.  Combs did not preserve title insurance premiums entrusted to him by clients, and disbursed more funds for clients than he had in his trust account.  He failed to keep adequate client ledgers and perform monthly and quarterly reconciliations of accounts.  Based on this neglect and his improper actions, he was suspended.
