Reinstatement After Voluntary Resignation
If there comes a time when an attorney who has resigned from the bar of New York wishes to be reinstated to practice in this state, he or she must comply with § 691.11-a of this court’s rules governing the reinstatement of resignees (22 NYCRR 691.11-a) (PDF) . That rule requires an applicant to explain the circumstances of his or her resignation and the reason for applying for reinstatement; to state whether he or she has been the subject of a disciplinary complaint or proceeding elsewhere since the effective date of the resignation and, if so, the results thereof; to establish that he or she is in good standing in any other jurisdiction in which he or she is admitted to practice; and to demonstrate that he or she has taken one credit hour of accredited New York CLE for each month since the effective date of the resignation, up to a maximum of 24 credits.

The application must be made in accordance with the court's Instructions for Reinstatement to the Bar After Voluntary Resignation and be in the form of a motion on notice to the Grievance Committee. The payment of any arrearages in registration fees owed to the New York Office of Court Administration that existed prior to the voluntary resignation is required. Upon reinstatement, the attorney must also remit payment of the biennial registration fee for the current filing period.
