On Thursday, February 1, 2024, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Third Department ruled to accept the request for nondisciplinary resignation from the state bar by attorney Eileen Weiss Toll.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Eileen Weiss Toll,” with case no. PM-14-24.

Toll applied to resign from the New York Bar for nondisciplinary reasons in December 2023. She submitted an affidavit in support of her application. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, which oversees attorney conduct in the Third Department, advised the court that it did not oppose Toll’s resignation.

In a brief per curiam decision, the Appellate Court accepted Toll’s resignation application. The court’s order struck Toll’s name from the New York roll of attorneys and forbade her from practicing law in New York going forward. Toll must also surrender her Attorney Secure Pass to the New York Office of Court Administration within 30 days.

By approving Toll’s request, the Appellate Division allowed her voluntary resignation from the New York Bar for nondisciplinary reasons, as provided under the state’s Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters. Toll is no longer authorized to practice law or present herself as an attorney in New York state.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Toll is a real estate attorney in Springfield, New Jersey. She attended the Albany Law School of Union University, graduating in 1980. She acquired her law license in New York in 1981.
