In re Davis

Supreme Court of Georgia

October 6, 2014

IN THE MATTER OF ASHLEY A. DAVIS

Voluntary surrender of license.

Paula J. Frederick, General Counsel State Bar, Jonathan W. Hewett, Assistant General Counsel State Bar, for State Bar of Georgia.

Steven A. Miller, for Davis.

All the Justices concur.

OPINION

Per curiam.

This disciplinary matter is before the Court pursuant to the petition for voluntary surrender of license filed by Ashley A. Davis (State Bar No. 207475) pursuant to Bar Rule 4-227 (b) prior to the issuance of a Formal Complaint. In the petition, Davis, who has been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2003 but who is currently [295 Ga. 849] serving a 30-month suspension from the practice of law with conditions on reinstatement based on an earlier drug conviction under the First Offender Act, see In the Matter of Davis, 292 Ga. 897 (742 S.E.2d 734) (2013), admits that on April 3, 2014, she pled guilty to and was convicted, under her married name of Ashley Davis Grooms, in the Superior Court of Bartow County of possession of methamphetamine and making a false statement, both felonies.[1] Davis admits that her convictions violate Rule 8.4 (a) (2) of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct and as a result she requests that this Court accept the voluntary surrender of her license to practice law, which is tantamount to disbarment. The Bar has responded, asserting its belief that it is in the best interests of the Bar and the public for this Court to accept Davis' petition.
