On Thursday, July 27, 2023, the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department granted the petition for reinstatement filed by attorney Amy Cary Catherine Brosnan.
The case is titled ‘In the Matter of Attorneys in Violation of Judiciary Law’ with case no. PM-154-23.
According to a Memorandum and Order on Motion entered on September 1, 2022, Attorney Amy Catherine Brosnan was suspended on September 2022 on the ground that Attorney Brosnan had failed to fulfill her attorney registration obligations for at least two consecutive biennial registration periods since 2018. The suspension was indefinite.
A few months into the suspension, Attorney Brosnan filed a motion to reinstate her to the practice of law.
After thorough consideration of the motion and affidavits filed by Attorney Brosnan and the correspondence from the Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, the Court was convinced by clear and convincing evidence that Attorney Brosnan had complied with the order of suspension and the Court; and had effectively achieved the requisite character and fitness to practice law. On this account, the Court grants the petition and reinstates Attorney Brosnan as an attorney and counselor-at-law in the State of New York.
The order reads:
“. . .respondent has complied with the order of suspension and the rules of this Court, (2) respondent has the requisite character and fitness to practice law, and (3) it would be in the public interest to reinstate respondent to the practice of law (see rules for Atty Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.16 [a]), it is
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.”
