Order of Disability Suspension
M. Bar R. 27(a)

By filing dated August 23, 2018, the Board of Overseers of the Bar (the Board) petitioned this Court for an Order suspending former attorney Robert C. Robbins, IV, for disability-related reasons. Included with the Board’s Petition was an Affidavit of Deputy Bar Counsel.

For good cause shown by the Board, Robert C. Robbins appears to be disabled and unable to properly discharge his professional duties. Although he is currently administratively suspended, should he attempt to return to practicing law, Mr. Robbins could pose a substantial threat to clients, the public, and to the administration of justice.

Accordingly, this Court ORDERS that Robert C. Robbins is suspended from the practice of law in Maine until further Order of this Court.
