On Thursday, January 11, 2024, attorney Jenette Hernandez was reinstated as an attorney in New York State after being suspended from practicing law in 2019.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Jenette Hernandez,” with case no. PM-01-24.

On September 22, 2023, Hernandez filed a motion seeking reinstatement to the practice of law following her suspension by the court’s May 2019 order for violating provisions of the Judiciary Law. She submitted an affidavit and exhibits providing evidence that she now meets the requirements for reinstatement. These include satisfying the terms of the suspension order, complying with court rules during her suspension, and demonstrating proper character and fitness to practice law once again.

The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department reviewed Hernandez’s application and filed a response on December 18, 2023, not opposing her reinstatement.

In a decision on January 11, 2024, the Appellate Division granted Hernandez’s motion for reinstatement, allowing her to immediately resume her legal career. The court determined through clear and convincing evidence that she qualified to regain her license to practice law 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.”

According to avvo.com, Ms. Hernandez is an attorney based in Boston, Massachusetts. She attended the St. John S School of Law. She acquired her law license in New York in 2005.
