On September 15, 2023, the Supreme Court of New Jersey reinstated attorney Daniel David Hediger to the practice of law following his three-month suspension for violating ethical rules related to recordkeeping and cooperation with disciplinary authorities.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Daniel David Hediger,” case no. 088616.

The suspension came in after the Disciplinary Review Board found that Hediger failed to comply with the recordkeeping requirements of Rule 1:21-6 and failed to cooperate with disciplinary authorities, in violation of RPC 1.15(d) and RPC 8.1(b), respectively. The Board recommended a three-month suspension, which was adopted by the Supreme Court, in its order dated May 10, 2023. Hediger’s suspension was effective June 12, 2023.

For this reason, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania imposed a reciprocal discipline upon Hediger on August 16, 2023.

According to the Order of Reinstatement, the Disciplinary Review Board recommended Hediger’s reinstatement to the Court, citing his compliance with the conditions set forth by the Board, including refraining from practicing as a professional corporation or any corporate entity until he provides proof of malpractice insurance.

Accordingly, the Court adopted the Board’s recommendation and issued an order reinstating Hediger to the practice of law.

In its order, the Court noted that Hediger had satisfied the conditions set forth by the Disciplinary Review Board and had shown good cause for his reinstatement. The Court also warned that any future violations of ethical rules may result in further disciplinary action, including a longer suspension or disbarment.

With his reinstatement, Hediger can now continue to practice law in New Jersey, subject to his compliance with the conditions set forth by the Disciplinary Review Board.

Mr. Hediger’s professional profile indicates that he practices in Oradell, New Jersey. He attended the George Washington University Law School. Hediger has been admitted to practice in New Jersey in 1995.
