On Thursday, March 23, 2023, the State of New York, Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, entered a Decision and Order on Motion accepting attorney Yang Wan’s petition for reinstatement.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Yang Wan,” with case no. PM-61-23.

On May 2019, an order from the court was issued suspending Attorney Wan’s license to practice law in New York. Following the suspension, attorney Wan filed a motion for an order reinstating him.

In relation to the petition, Attorney Wan filed a respondent’s notice of motion and affidavit with exhibits sworn on September 21, 2022, along with his supplemental filing on October 18, 2022, before the Supreme Court of New York. On the other hand, on January 5, 2023, the Attorney Grievance Committee filed a correspondence determining by clear and convincing evidence that the respondent has complied with the order of suspension and the rules of the court. Second, that the respondent has the requisite character and fitness to practice law. Lastly, it would be in the public interest to reinstate the respondent to the practice of law.

Having considered the sworn affidavit filed by the respondent and the correspondence from the AGC agreeing with the petition, the court decided to grant the petition and reinstated Attorney Wan.

The order 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.”

Mr. Wan is licensed to practice law in New York with license no. 4809752.
