On November 2, 2023, the Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, granted the application for non-disciplinary resignation submitted by attorney Richard P. Lubert.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Richard P. Lubert,” with case no. PM-255-23.

Lubert sought approval to resign from the New York bar for reasons unrelated to disciplinary matters. Lubert’s request for non-disciplinary resignation, as per Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters was not contested by the Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department.

After reviewing Richard P. Lubert’s affidavit filed on September 20, 2023, and the correspondence dated October 18, 2023, from the Deputy Chief Attorney for the Attorney Grievance Committee (AGC), the court has concluded that Lubert is eligible for non-disciplinary resignation. The court has approved Lubert’s application and accepted his resignation.

Consequently, the court ordered the immediate removal of Lubert’s name from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law in the State of New York. Lubert is directed to cease practicing law within the state and surrender any Attorney Secure Pass within 30 days.

The Dispositon reads:

“ORDERED that Richard P. Lubert’s application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted; and it is further

ORDERED that Richard P. Lubert’s name is hereby stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law of the State of New York, effective immediately, and until further order of this Court.”

According to Avvo, Mr. Lubert acquired his law license in New York in 1985.
