Robert Tucker was suspended from the practice of law on November 3, 2015.   During the course of his law practice, Tucker mishandled several trust accounts by failing to properly keep records and disbursing more funds than were deposited.  Tucker also failed to record deeds of trust for several clients and failed to collect funds.  The Disciplinary Hearing Panel concluded that Tucker’s actions violated several subsections of Rule 1.15 of the North Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct. As a result, the hearing panel suspended his law license for two years, but has stayed the suspension for three, so long as he regularly checks in and follows a list of conditions set forth by the committee.
