On Thursday, March 14, 2024, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Third Department ruled to accept the request for nondisciplinary resignation from the state bar by attorney Daniel Farrell O’Brien.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Daniel Farrell O’Brien,” with case no. PM-40-24.

O’Brien applied to resign from the New York Bar for nondisciplinary reasons in January 2024. He submitted an affidavit in support of his application. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, which oversees attorney conduct in the Third Department, advised the court that it did not oppose O’Brien’s resignation.

In a brief per curiam decision, the Appellate Court accepted O’Brien’s resignation application. The court’s order struck O’Brien’s name from the New York roll of attorneys and forbade him from practicing law in New York going forward. O’Brien must also surrender his Attorney Secure Pass to the New York Office of Court Administration within 30 days.

By approving O’Brien’s request, the Appellate Division allowed his voluntary resignation from the New York Bar for nondisciplinary reasons, as provided under the state’s Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters. O’Brien is no longer authorized to practice law or present himself as an attorney in New York state.

According to avvo.com, Mr. Daniel Farrell O’Brien is an attorney in Newark, New Jersey. He attended St. Thomas University School of Law and obtained his law license in New York in 2018.
