On Thursday, February 1, 2024, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York’s Third Department deemed that attorney Vincent Dominick Paragano had satisfied all the conditions of his reinstatement to the practice of law.

The case is entitled “In the Mater of Vincent Dominick Paragano,” with case no. PM-09-24.

In 2013, Paragano was involved in a fraudulent real estate transaction, which led to his disbarment in both New Jersey and New York. In February 2023, he was reinstated in New York subject to certain requirements.

Paragano provided proof that he underwent a career assessment by the Lawyers’ Assistance Program, participated in a monitoring agreement as recommended, and entered into a risk management services agreement with his legal counsel. He also submitted a report detailing counseling received about resuming his legal career. In November 2023, Paragano showed completion of the monitoring agreement.

During a personal appearance before the Appellate Division in January 2024, Paragano demonstrated his compliance with the conditions and updated the court about his return to legal practice. The Appellate Division ruling stated it deemed “each of the conditions of respondent’s reinstatement to be satisfied,” based on the documents submitted and the hearing. With the conditions now fulfilled, Paragano’s reinstatement in New York is complete.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that each condition set forth in this Court’s February 2, 2023 Memorandum and Order are hereby deemed satisfied.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Paragano attended the American University, Washington College of Law. He acquired his law license in New York in 1987.
