Magnolia attorney's conditional bar admission revoked


By Karen Kidd | Oct 10, 2018

NEW ORLEANS (Louisiana Record) — Magnolia attorney Robert Alford Lenoir has agreed to the revocation of his conditional admission to the bar in Louisiana, according to an Oct. 8 Louisiana Supreme Court order that says he can reapply after a year of sobriety.

Revocation of Lenoir's conditional admission, granted in 2012, was effective immediately, according to the high court's single-page order.

"[Lenoir] may not reapply for admission until he can demonstrate at least a one-year period of sobriety and compliance with the terms and conditions of a contract with the judges and lawyers assistance program," the order said.

The state Supreme Court's order followed a petition for revocation of Lenoir's conditional admission to the bar filed by the office of disciplinary counsel and Lenoir's consent to the revocation, according to the order

Lenoir also was ordered to pay all costs and expenses in the matter.

Lenoir was conditionally admitted to the bar in Louisiana on Nov. 5, 2012, according to his profile at the Louisiana State Bar Association's website. His profile lists Lenoir's law office in Magnolia. No prior discipline was listed on his state bar profile.

Lenoir was required to meet six conditions when he was admitted to the bar. "Should [Lenoir] fail to make a good faith effort to satisfy these conditions, or should he commit any misconduct during the period of probation, his conditional right to practice may be terminated or he may be subjected to other discipline pursuant to the rules for lawyer disciplinary enforcement," the high court said in its conditional admission of Lenoir.

Lenoir, then living in Mississippi, was required to execute a five-year recovery agreement with that state's bar lawyers and judges assistance program. Then, upon his move to Louisiana, Lenoir was required to execute "an appropriate recovery agreement" with Louisiana's lawyers assistance program.

"In no event shall the term of [Lenoir]'s recovery agreement be less than five years," the conditional admission said.
