Reinstatement of Suspended and Disbarred Attorneys
Attorneys suspended from the practice of law for failure to comply with the attorney biannual registration requirement or who have been suspended from the practice of law for less than six months have a relatively easy readmission process—although not all have gone smoothly.
The standard for readmission to New York State Bar is clear and convincing evidence which is a higher standard than the preponderance of the evidence standard that is needed to establish liability in a professional misconduct grievance proceeding. Anyone seeking readmission to the New York State Bar should not take it lightly. A complete and thorough application is essential for success. Courts have repeated deny applications for reinstatement from suspended and disbarred attorneys. Don’t go it alone, Whittingham Law is here to help.
