On Thursday, November 30, 2023, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York reinstated attorney Priscilla Jennifer Triolo to the practice of law, reversing her suspension from September 2022.
The case is entitled “In the Matter of. Priscilla Jennifer Triolo,” with case no. PM-270-23.
Triolo had been suspended by order of the Third Judicial Department of the Appellate Division in September 2022 for failure to register as an attorney as required by New York state law. Attorneys admitted to practice in New York must register biennially and pay fees, under Judiciary Law Section 468-a.
Triolo has applied for reinstatement under the Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters. In her motion filed on September 11, 2023, Triolo asserted that she has complied with the terms of her suspension and the court rules. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department responded on October 11, 2023, stating they did not oppose her reinstatement.
In a decision dated November 30th, 2023, the Appellate Division ruled that Triolo had proven by clear and convincing evidence that she meets the standard for reinstatement. Specifically, the court found she complied with the suspension order, has the requisite character and fitness to practice, and that reinstatement would be in the public interest. As a result, the court immediately reinstated Triolo’s 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 Lawyers.com, Ms. Triolo is a bankruptcy and debt attorney in Paramus, New Jersey. She acquired her law license in New York in 2017.
