On Tuesday, October 24, 2023, the Alabama Supreme Court ordered Florence attorney Mollie Hunter McCutchen disbarred from practicing law in the state of Alabama. The order was based on rulings from the Disciplinary Board of the Alabama State Bar from May 2019 regarding two cases against McCutchen.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Attorney Mollie Hunter McCutchen.”

In ASB No. 2012-1276, the board found McCutchen violated Rules 1.15(d), 8.1(b), 8.4(a), 8.4(c), and 8.4(g) of the Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct. In ASB No. 2013-2046, McCutchen violated Rules 1.3, 1.4, 1.15(d), 8.1(b), 8.4(a), and 8.4(g) of the rules.

In 2016, McCutchen pleaded guilty to first-degree theft of property before her trial began. She was accused of taking $17,000 in insurance money intended for a client’s house cleaning and keeping it for herself. She was indicted in February 2016 following an investigation by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s State Bureau of Investigation. She was arrested in March 2016.

The Supreme Court order made the disbarment effective at the end of McCutchen’s current disbarment period, which came to a close on October 24, 2023. The order followed recommendations from the Disciplinary Board of the Alabama State Bar.

According to avvo.com, Ms. McCutchen is an attorney in Florence, Alabama. She attended the Appalachian School of Law. She acquired her law license in Alabama in 2011.
