JEFFERSON CITY (St. Louis Record) — Longtime O'Fallon, Illinois, attorney Hrant "Hud" Norsigian Jr. has been reinstated to practice law in Missouri following an Aug. 22 Missouri Supreme Court order.
The Missouri Supreme Court's order followed a motion filed by Norsigian, 56, for an order recognizing his successful completion of probation and a separate response from the Missouri Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel to Norsigian's motion. The state high court issued an order stating Norsigian's year of probation was successfully completed and terminated his probation.
The court also ordered Norsigian to pay costs.
Norsigian was admitted to the bar in Missouri on Oct. 14, 1988, according to his profile at The Missouri Bar's website. In addition to his Illinois and Missouri state bar membership, Norsigian also is a member of the St. Clair County Bar Association, according to information on his firm's website.
Norsigian was placed on 12 months' probation following a July 2018 Missouri Supreme Court order after he allegedly violated professional conduct rules regarding safekeeping of property. Neither the court's most recent order nor the order issued in July 2018 provided any details about the allegations against Norsigian. The July 2018 order also required Norsigian to pay costs.
Norsigian's legal practice, Norsigian Law Office, is in O'Fallon, according to the firm's website. Norsigian's practice includes personal injury, general civil and property damage litigation, as well as estate planning, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and probate administration, according to the website.
Norsigian attended law school at Washington University School of Law, where he graduated magna cum laude in 1988 in the top 5 percent of his class. While at Washington U., Norsigian was an associate editor of the Washington University Law Quarterly, according to his firm's website.
Norsigian's articles have twice appeared in Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education publications, according to his firm's website.
