On Thursday, February 29, 2024, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York granted attorney Peter Seung-K Wang Lee’s motion to be reinstated to the practice of law.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Peter Seung-K Wang Lee,” with case no. PM-23-24.

Lee had been suspended from practicing law in May 2019. In his motion, Lee provided proof that he had complied with the order of suspension and paid registration fees. He also showed that he passed the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam and established that he has an appropriate moral character to practice law. The Attorney Grievance Committee, which oversees attorney conduct, did not oppose the motion.

In a brief order, the court reinstated Lee’s law license finding clear and convincing evidence that he meets the requirements to practice law again and that reinstatement would be in the public interest. Lee can immediately resume representing clients as an active member of the New York Bar.

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, Mr. Lee is an attorney in Washington, D.C. He attended the Syracuse University Law School. He acquired his law license in New York in 2005.
