On Thursday, February 29, 2024, the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department reinstated attorney Aleksandra Elzbieta Krawcewicz to practice law. Krawcewicz had been suspended from practice by a May 2019 order from the same court due to failure to comply as required by Judiciary Law Section 468-a.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Aleksandra Elzbieta Krawcewicz,” with case no. PM-24-24.

To obtain reinstatement, Krawcewicz had to satisfy the rules of the Appellate Division, show compliance with the order of suspension and court rules, and demonstrate the proper character and fitness to practice law. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department responded to Krawcewicz’s reinstatement motion and did not oppose it.

In her motion and supporting documents sworn to December 1, 2023, Krawcewicz provided evidence that she met the obligations to regain her license. The court ruled that reinstatement would be in the public interest. Krawcewicz is now authorized to resume work as an attorney and counselor-at-law without restrictions in New York.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that respondent’s motion for reinstatement is granted; and it is further ORDERED that respondent is reinstated as an attorney and counselor-at-law, effective immediately.”
