3-year suspension ordered for Craighead County lawyer
Posted on Wednesday, August 26th, 2015
The license of a female lawyer in Craighead County was recently suspended for three years due to past convictions on drug charges, an article from Arkansas Online reported on August 9.
Reports said attorney Belinda Burris’ law license was ordered suspended for three years on August 6 by the Arkansas Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct. Burris was reportedly arrested and convicted on several drug-related charges and a DWI from 2007 to 2012. Burris’ lawyer’s license was not reinstated after the Arkansas Continuing Legal Education Board suspended it in 2009.
