On Wednesday, October 5, 2022, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ordered the suspension of Pitman Attorney Christopher M. Manganello.

The case is styled In the Matter of Christopher M. Manganello and was brought by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel under case no. 103 DB 2022.

On April 8, 2022, the Supreme Court of New Jersey issued a back-to-back suspension order against Respondent for abandoning clients, attempting to conceal wrongdoings, and for repeated failures to cooperate with the disciplinary authorities.

The first suspension order suspended Respondent for six months, effective May 9, 2022, while the second suspension order suspended him for one year, effective November 9, 2022.

With the foregoing facts, and Respondent’s failure to respond to a Notice and Order directing him to provide reasons against the imposition of reciprocal discipline, the Court ruled for the imposition of reciprocal discipline against Respondent.

The Order reads:

“Christopher M. Manganello, a/k/a Christopher Michael Manganello, is suspended from the practice of law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for a period of six months and for a separate period of one year, to be served consecutive to the aforementioned six-month suspension, consistent with the Orders of the Supreme Court of New Jersey. He shall also comply with all the provisions of Pa.R.D.E. 217.”

Prior to this suspension, Mr. Manganello practiced in Pitman, New Jersey. He has been licensed in Pennsylvania, license no. 82728, as well as in New Jersey.
