Well-known Toccoa attorney Timothy Paul Healy was suspended from the practice of law by the Supreme Court of Georgia on Friday, Sept. 20.
“Because Timothy Paul Healy has failed to adequately respond to the State Bar’s Notice of Investigation, and the maximum sanction for the violations contained in the Notice is disbarment, pursuant to State Bar Rule 4-294.3 (d), it is ordered that Healy be suspended from the practice of law in Georgia until further order of this Court,” Supreme Court of Georgia documents state.
According to the State Bar of Georgia, an interim suspension is defined as a temporary suspension of an attorneys right to practice law based on the attorney’s failure to respond to a grievance pending with the Investigative Panel of the State Disciplinary Board.
No information has been released about the reason(s) for the investigation of Healy.
A graduate of Woodrow Wilson College of Law, Healy was admitted to the Bar on June 14, 1979, and his practice is known as The Healy Law Firm LLC.
Healy has not yet responded to a request from AccessWDUN to comment on the interim suspension.
