Blair completed an undergraduate honours degree at Queen’s University. He then obtained his law degree from the University of Ottawa Law School, graduating magna cum laude. After articling at the Ottawa firm of Rasmussen Starr Ruddy in 1995, he returned to the Pembroke area in 1995 to start in private practice.
He recalls the early years as exciting and challenging. One client at a time, he started to build a practice and establish a name in the legal community. Over the years, he has been fortunate to secure a large client base, and to develop a referral network with other professionals. "It is very satisfying to have clients return, to have them refer their friends, and to have others in this business put their trust in you", he says.
Blair also feels a sincere commitment to his clients because of his roots in Renfrew County.
"This is home for me, my wife and our extended families", he says. "You have to do a good job for people because in a small town, people know you and they know your family. Integrity is important. Here, your reputation really matters."
Currently, Blair restricts his practice to matters involving real estate, business transactions as well as Wills and Estate Administration. Blair draws on more than 18 years of experience, and continues to research and actively follow updates and changes in these areas of law.
Blair has been described by his clients as easy going and approachable. He invites you to call him with your legal questions.
