On Thursday, January 25, 2024, the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department reinstated attorney Patrina Alesia Ozurumba to the practice of law.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Patrina Alesia Ozurumba,” with case no. PM-07-24.

Ozurumba had been suspended from practicing law by an order from the same court in September 2022. She subsequently filed a motion seeking reinstatement on November 28, 2023.The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department filed a responsive correspondence to Ozurumba’s motion on January 2, 2024.

After reviewing Ozurumba’s reinstatement application materials, as well as the Grievance Committee’s response, the court determined that Ozurumba had complied with the terms of her suspension order. It also found that she possessed the suitable character and fitness to practice law once more. Considering that reinstating her legal practice would be in the public’s best interest, the court granted Ozurumba’s motion.

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.”
