On Thursday, October 26, 2023, the Supreme Court of New York’s Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, accepted the resignation of attorney Jeffrey Mark Chebot from practicing law in New York for non-disciplinary reasons.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Jeffrey Mark Chebot,” with case no. PM-245-23.

Chebot, who lives in Wyncote, Pennsylvania, was admitted to the New York bar in 2008. On July 31, 2023, Chebot submitted an affidavit to the court seeking non-disciplinary resignation.

The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, which oversees attorney conduct in twenty-three counties of upstate New York, advised the court that it did not oppose Chebot’s application for resignation. On October 16, 2023, the committee’s Deputy Chief Attorney submitted a letter response confirming their non-opposition.

In a brief, unanimous decision dated October 26, 2023, the five-judge panel accepted Chebot’s resignation application, thereby stripping him of his ability to practice law in New York. The court’s order commands Chebot to “desist and refrain from the practice of law in any form” in New York. He is also forbidden from offering any legal opinions or advice.

Within thirty days, Chebot must surrender any Attorney Secure Pass issued by the New York Office of Court Administration. His name will be stricken from the official roll of attorneys authorized to practice in New York.

Chebot did not state a reason for resigning from the New York bar in his affidavit. He will maintain his ability to practice law in Pennsylvania, where he resides.

According to martindale.com, Mr. Chebot attended the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1980. He acquired his law license in New York in 2008.
