By his own voluntary consent, attorney Kenneth Brian Adkins’ license was annulled by the State of West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals on Friday, June 8, 2023.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Kenneth Brian Adkins,” with case no. 23-295.

In a significant ruling, the Supreme Court of Appeals announced its decision regarding the case of Kenneth Brian Adkins, a member of the West Virginia State Bar. At a regular term held on June 9, 2023, an order was entered that would forever alter Adkins’ legal career.

The proceedings were set in motion when, on May 24, 2023, the Office of Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel presented a compelling petition to the court. Seeking the acceptance of the respondent’s license annulment, the petition alleged violations warranting disciplinary action. The gravity of the situation was evident as Adkins himself filed a formal affidavit, under seal, on May 25, 2023, consenting to voluntary disbarment.

After thorough deliberation and careful examination of the petition, the Supreme Court of Appeals reached a decision on June 7, 2023. In accordance with Rule 3.25 of the Rules of Lawyer Disciplinary Procedure, the Court granted the petition and ordered the annulment of Kenneth Brian Adkins’ license to practice law in the State of West Virginia by voluntary consent.

The Disposition states:

“Upon review and consideration on June 7, 2023, the Court d(RS grant the petition. It is ORDERED that pursuant to Rule 3.25 of the Rules of Lawyer Disciplinary Procedure, the license to practice law in the State of West Virginia of the respondent Kenneth Brian Adkins is annulled by voluntary consent.”
