Conditional Admission

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department denied an application for admission of an attorney who was admitted on conditions in New Jersey. The applicant was admitted in New Jersey in January 2007 on conditions that he remain abstinent from all intoxicating substances, continue therapy, arttend at lease three AA meetings a week, not engage in solo practice unless supervised and certify compliance with the conditions. The conditions are in effect for three years.

The court here will consider admission when the applicant is admitted unconditionally in New Jersey. (Mike Frisch)
