Norman Blais Attorney at Law, Norman Blais
...
A general law practitioner, attorney Norman Blais considers himself a throwback. He's been in solo practice since the '90s, working from a historic Burlington residence on College Street, known affectionately as The Lawyer Barn, where he leases space to seven other attorneys.
Last year, at 61, Norman Blais ran for and won a seat on the Burlington City Council. His decision to run was spurred by the death, in 2006, of a fellow lawyer.
"When Hilton Wick died," says Blais, "his obituary went on for paragraph after paragraph after paragraph, listing his accomplishments, his community service.
...
It's not as though Blais hasn't had a life worth reading about. He once appeared on the Phil Donahue Show with his then-partner Mark Keller, to discuss a case they had taken (and won), representing a Bennington woman charged with murdering her child.
"It was a really tough case for us, because it was a case where the client was having trouble finding a lawyer because of the gruesome details," says Blais. "The baby was 6 years old, and she shot it in the chest, but then turned around and shot herself, and missed her heart by about an inch."
The woman was found not guilty by reason of insanity because of postpartum depression. "That developed to be one of the premier textbook cases for postpartum depression and is now taught at Harvard Medical School," Blais says.
...
Blais also prides himself on being a solo general practitioner, confessing to be a member of a dying breed - "a throwback to how lawyers used to be. He has a fairly active personal injury, divorce, and criminal case load, and a diverse number of business clients, he says, adding that he tends to get involved more in cases that are likely to end up in court.
Hilton Wick's obituary might not have been the only inspiration Blais had for seeking public office.
...
"I started as a young deputy state's attorney up in Franklin County, and ran into Norm when he was a defense attorney on the other side of the table. It has always been a pleasure to deal with him.
"Norm brings a grounding air of calmness in everything he does that rubs off on other people. It has made the council meetings more productive and the city council Democrats more productive."
Working with Blais is Darci Benoit, his assistant, whose office is out in the building's reception area.

O'Connor stopped McKenna after seeing her ...

www.burlingtonfreepress.com [cached]

O'Connor stopped McKenna after seeing her "in the company of an African-Ameri­can male," her attorney, Norman Blais, wrote in court papers filed last summer in Chittenden County Superior Court.

...
Blais filed suit to force the city to release O'Con­nor's record of the stop, including a video­tape and dispatch log entries.
South Burlington twice refused to re­lease the documents, claiming initially they were privileged under a provision of the state's public-records law that permits re­cords relevant to litigation to be withheld.
The city capitulated when Blais went to court and released the McKenna records to him after he agreed to sign a confidentiality agreement - an approach not sanctioned by the records law.
...
The city's rationale for providing Blais with the documents while creating another standard for the public drew criticism from Secretary of State Jim Con­dos and from Allen Gilbert, director of American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont, who called the local decision "frightening."
...
In a statement Thursday, Blais said O'Connor accused McKenna during the stop "of being a drug courier."
...
"Ms. McKenna was de­tained for nearly an hour by Officer O'Connor without, in her view, adequate legal justification for that lengthy detention," Blais said Thurs­day.
