On Tuesday, November 7, 2023, the Supreme Court of Georgia publicly reprimanded Atlanta attorney Tamorra A. Boyd for violating several rules of professional conduct in her dealings with a former mortgage assistance clients.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Tamorra A. Boyd,” with case no. S22Y0940.

The charges cited Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct 1.4, 1.5(b), and 7.1 

According to the court order, in 2018, Boyd signed a contract with Olympia Law Group (OLG), a California law firm, to provide legal services as an attorney for OLG’s clients in Georgia. Boyd was identified as “Of Counsel” for OLG matters in Georgia and was listed on the firm’s website.

The State Bar of Georgia filed a formal complaint against Boyd after a Georgia couple contacted OLG for help negotiating a mortgage loan modification. On April 11, 2018, the couple signed a contract with OLG, which allowed the firm to withdraw $750 per month from their bank account in exchange for its services. However, the couple later terminated OLG’s services and requested a refund, which OLG failed to provide. The wife filed a grievance against Boyd, leading to the Bar’s investigation.

During the investigation, Boyd admitted that she was “Of Counsel” for OLG for Georgia cases but did not directly work on the couple’s case or consult with them. She claimed that her role was limited to reviewing the couple’s submitted information and approving them as clients for OLG. Boyd also acknowledged that she was paid $75 for her services but did not collect any funds from the couple and had no authority to return funds to them.

The special master found that Boyd had defaulted on the formal complaint and violated several rules of professional conduct. Boyd negotiated with the Bar to resolve the issue via a petition for voluntary discipline, which she filed in July 2023. In the petition, Boyd acknowledged her default and violation of the rules of professional conduct. She requested that the special master reconsider the prior recommendation of a six-month suspension based on new information provided in the petition.

The special master issued a new report and recommendation, agreeing that Boyd had violated the rules of professional conduct and recommended a public reprimand as the appropriate discipline. The special master noted that Boyd had defaulted on the formal complaint and had failed to provide any evidence to mitigate the discipline. The special master also found that Boyd’s conduct had caused harm to the public and prejudiced the integrity of the legal profession.

The Supreme Court of Georgia accepted the special master’s report and recommendation and issued a public reprimand against Boyd.

The Disposition states:

“Therefore, the Court hereby accepts Boyd’s petition for voluntary discipline and directs that Tamorra A. Boyd be administered a public reprimand in open court pursuant to Bar Rules 4-102(b)(3) and 4-220(c) for her admitted violations of GRPC 1.4, 1.5(b), and 7.1.”

According to avvo.com, Ms. Boyd is a business attorney in Marietta, Georgia. She acquired her law license in Georgia in 2014.
