Tangible Benefits

An attorney suspended in 2019 for failure to pay comply with annual registration requirements has been reinstated and blessed by the New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department

her reinstatement is likely to have a tangible benefit. Respondent, a former New Jersey public defender, is now focused on "creating policy to reduce mass incarceration in this country" and it is submitted that her career focus on assisting marginalized and disadvantaged populations would be well served by her restoration to practice in New York (see Matter of Becker, 202 AD3d at 1432).

Accordingly, having determined that respondent has satisfied her burden in every respect, we grant her application for reinstatement.

Petitioner is  "currently employed in a policy role with a not-for-profit organization in Kings County." (Mike Frisch)
