NOTICE TO THE BAR
Notice and Court Order for the List of Ineligible Foreign Legal Consultants.
Under R. 1:21-9(f)(2), a foreign legal consultant is subject to the same requirements as licensed members of the New Jersey Bar under a number of Court Rules. Among these are the requirements to pay the annual assessment. The Supreme Court has entered an Order declaring ineligible to practice law in New Jersey those foreign legal consultants not in compliance with the 2004 annual assessment. That Order and the list of ineligible foreign legal consultants follow. The Fund's last known mailing address is listed for each foreign legal consultant. Please contact the Fund if you have knowledge of a more current mailing address.
Through December 31, 2004, foreign legal consultants will be reinstated without further order of the Court upon filing with the Fund the annual registration statement for the current year together with payment of ALL of the following: this year's annual payment, the late fee, any arrears due from prior years, and a reinstatement fee of $25 if a foreign legal consultant is being removed from one calendar year's Ineligible List or $50 if a foreign legal consultant is being removed from two or more calendar years' Lists.
NOTE that the Supreme Court recently amended Rules that govern the annual assessment. As of January 1, 2005, the reinstatement fee will be raised to $50 if a foreign legal consultant is being removed from one calendar year’s Ineligible List or $100 if a foreign legal consultant is being removed from two or more calendar years’ Lists. Upon publication of the 2005 Ineligible List, foreign legal consultants whose names are included on the Ineligible List for the seventh consecutive time will have their licenses revoked by Order of the Supreme Court.
If additional information is needed, please call (609) 292-8079 or 777-0311.
Kenneth J. Bossong, Director
SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY ORDER
Whereas, the Trustees of the New Jersey Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection, pursuant to R. 1:21-9(f)(2) and R. 1:28-2, have reported to this Court the names of those foreign legal consultants who have neither made full payment to the Fund, the Disciplinary Oversight Committee, and the Lawyers Assistance Program for the calendar year 2004 nor demonstrated that they are entitled to an exemption from making such payment; whereas this Court has had the Trustees send notice to each foreign legal consultant that unless payment was made on or before August 13, 2004, his/her name would be published in the New Jersey Law Journal and the New Jersey Lawyer and an Order of this Court would be entered declaring him/her ineligible to practice law; and whereas, notwithstanding the fact that every reasonable effort has heretofore been made by the Trustees and by this Court to notify all foreign legal consultants of their obligation, unless exempt, to make payment to the Fund, the foreign legal consultants whose names appear on the attached list have, as of the date of this Order, failed either to make full payment or to request and be granted an exemption; it is hereby
ORDERED that each foreign legal consultant whose name appears on the attached list shall be ineligible to engage in the practice of law in this State after the publication of this Order; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that no foreign legal consultant on this list shall be eligible to practice law in New Jersey until he/she has paid the required fee or fees, or explained to the satisfaction of the Trustees why he/she was entitled to an exemption for each of the years for which he/she has been ineligible, and paid applicable late fees and an additional fee of $25 ($50 after December 31, 2004) for removal from one year's Ineligible List or $50 ($100 after December 31, 2004) for removal from two or more years' Lists; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that this Order and the attached list of foreign legal consultants be published in the New Jersey Law Journal and the New Jersey Lawyer on September 27, 2004 and that a copy of this Order be mailed to each foreign legal consultant whose name appears on the attached list at the address shown thereon.
