In the Matter of Louis

State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department


September 8, 2011

IN THE MATTER OF LOUIS MACCHIAVERNA, AN ATTORNEY. COMMITTEE ON PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS, PETITIONER; LOUIS MACCHIAVERNA, RESPONDENT.

Per curiam.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

(Attorney Registration No. 2922870)

Calendar Date: July 25, 2011

Before: Rose, J.P., Malone Jr., Kavanagh, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ.

Respondent was admitted to practice by this Court in 1998 and was also admitted to practice in New Jersey that same year, where he maintains an office for the practice of law.

By order dated October 19, 2010, the New Jersey Supreme Court publically reprimanded respondent after finding that he engaged in professional misconduct by negligently misappropriating client funds and violating record-keeping rules.

As a result of the discipline imposed in New Jersey, petitioner moves for an order imposing discipline pursuant to this Court's rules (see 22 NYCRR 806.19). Respondent has not replied to the motion.

Having considered the nature of respondent's misconduct and the consequent discipline imposed in New Jersey, we conclude that respondent should be censured in this state.

Rose, J.P., Malone Jr., Kavanagh, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.

ORDERED that petitioner's motion is granted; and it is further

ORDERED that respondent is hereby censured.

Robert D. Mayberger Clerk of the Court
