On Thursday, July 6, 2023, the State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department granted the application for permission to resign of attorney Gavin Fishman Alexander.

The case is entitled “In the matter of Gavin Fishman Alexander.” with case no. PM-139-23.

In 2013, Gavin Fishman Alexander was granted admission to practice law by the court and has since maintained a business address in Boston, Massachusetts, as recorded with the Office of Court Administration. As stipulated in the Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a], Alexander expressed his intention to voluntarily resign from the New York Bar without any disciplinary implications. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department (AGC) provided its input, stating that it did not object to Alexander’s application for resignation.

The court established that Alexander met the criteria for voluntary resignation from the New York bar for reasons unrelated to any disciplinary matters, after a thorough review of the petitioner’s affidavit, sworn to on May 17, 2023, and officially filed on May 19, 2023, and careful consideration of the correspondence received on June 22, 2023, from the Chief Attorney for the Attorney Grievance Committee (AGC). As a result, the court decided to approve Alexander’s application for resignation and accept his resignation from the bar.

The court ordered that Gavin Fishman Alexander’s name be immediately removed from the roster of attorneys and counselors-at-law of the State of New York. This order was effective without delay and until further notice from this court, in accordance with the Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters. The court also commanded Alexander to cease and abstain from engaging in any form of legal practice within the State of New York. He could not act as a principal, agent, clerk, or employee of another. The court prohibited Alexander from appearing as an attorney or counselor-at-law before any court, judge, justice, board, commission, or any other public authority. He could not provide legal opinions or advice related to the law or hold himself out in any manner as an attorney or counselor-at-law in this state. If he failed to adhere to these directives, he could face further disciplinary actions.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that Gavin Fishman Alexander’s application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted.”
