On January 17, 2024, the Supreme Court of Georgia issued an order indefinitely suspending the law license of attorney Brittany Renee Turner due to her failure to adequately respond to an investigation by the State Bar of Georgia.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Brittany Renee Turner,” with case no. S24Y0548.

According to the court order, Turner had failed to adequately respond to the allegations outlined in the Notice of Investigation from the State Bar of Georgia. Under state bar rules, when the maximum punishment for reported violations is disbarment, attorneys can face an interim suspension if they do not appropriately reply to official inquiries about potential misconduct.

In Turner’s case, the Supreme Court order did not provide specific details about the allegations or her level of cooperation with the bar’s investigation. It noted only that the maximum sanction in her underlying matter was the permanent revocation of her law license.

Due to Turner’s lack of response, the justices imposed an immediate suspension barring her ability to practice law until further direction from the high court. Her suspension took effect upon the January 17, 2024 ruling.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Turner is a litigation attorney. She attended the Florida Coastal School of Law. She acquired her law license in Georgia in 2014.
