The Florida Bar announced Dec. 29 that the state Supreme Court disciplined 30 attorneys, including three in Northeast Florida.

• Robert Charles Grady, 6243 Autumn Berry Circle in Jacksonville, is suspended for one year effective immediately following a Nov. 19 court order.

He was held in contempt of the court’s suspension order dated March 17 for failing to comply with requirements to notify clients, opposing counsel and tribunals of his suspension.

Grady also was publicly reprimanded in September 2017.

• Peter Arnold Robertson, 5575 Florida A1A S., Suite 116, in St. Augustine, is publicly reprimanded by publication effective immediately following a Dec. 20 court order.

Following an Aug. 6 order suspending Robertson from the practice of law for 90 days, Robertson discovered additional people he was required to notify and provide a copy of his suspension order as required by under Rule 3-5.1(h).

Robertson failed to provide an amended sworn affidavit listing the additional people that were notified after his initial and first amended affidavits were filed with the Bar.

In addition, Robertson’s associates filed several pleadings on his behalf after the effective date of his suspension.

• S.A. Siddiqui, 3840 Belfort Road, Suite 302, in Jacksonville, is suspended for three years effective immediately following a Dec. 20 court order.

An investigation determined Siddiqui engaged in a pattern of misconduct involving four separate client matters. He failed to provide his clients with competent representation and adequate communication, and he improperly disclosed confidential information.

Siddiqui also threatened to sue two clients for filing grievances with The Florida Bar and failed to respond timely to the Bar’s inquiries.

His member profile at floridabar.org indicates Siddiqui is retired.
