Clients claims lead to lawyers suspension

Staff report

The Alabama Supreme Court has ordered Selma attorney Robert Roland Blair suspended from the practice of law for three years, effective April 21.

Blair will receive credit for the time of his summary suspension, which became effective May 20, 2005.

The court issued the order after Blair&8217;s conditional guilty plea to the Alabama State Bar Association&8217;s disciplinary board.

The board said in a release more than 30 grievances and Client Security Fund claims were filed against Blair between April 2003 and January 2006.

Court records show Blair agreed to make restitution totaling in excess of $57,000 as a condition precedent to eligibility for seeking reinstatement.
