On Thursday, June 1, 2023, the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department granted the petition for reinstatement of attorney Anduena Dobroshi.

The case is entitled “Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department v. Anduena Dobroshi” with case no. PM-113-23.

In a recent legal development, the New York Supreme Court has granted the motion filed by the petitioner seeking reinstatement to the practice of law. The petitioner had previously been suspended by a court order in May 2019, as indicated in Matter of Attorneys in Violation of Judiciary Law § 468-a, 172 AD3d 1706, 1720 [3d Dept 2019]. The court’s decision took into account the relevant disciplinary rules, including Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters.

After a careful review of the respondent’s notice of motion and affidavit, which were sworn on January 3, 2023, along with the accompanying exhibits, and considering the March 2, 2023 correspondence from the Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, the court made several crucial determinations based on clear and convincing evidence. Firstly, it concluded that the respondent had fully complied with the order of suspension and the rules established by the court. Secondly, the court found that the respondent possessed the necessary character and fitness required for the practice of law. Lastly, it determined that reinstating the respondent to the practice of law would serve the best interests of the public, drawing upon legal precedents such as Matter of Quirk, 214 AD3d 1247, 1247 [3d Dept 2023].

Consequently, the court issued an order granting the respondent’s motion for reinstatement, allowing the attorney to resume the practice of law. This decision reflects the court’s careful consideration of the respondent’s compliance, character, and overall public interest in the administration of justice.

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.”
