This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
After being disbarred, a former attorney may apply for reinstatement. He or she must comply with all readmission requirements from the New York State Unified Court System.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court to understand the reasons for disbarment.
Suspended means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Having done business with MR Baumgarten I guess about twelve year's ago I found him to be knowledgeable, informative, and to the point each and every time. I had explained my situation and he informed me of all the possibilities. In the end I was pleased and have sent friends to his office that were in need of a lawyer. I will continue to use his expertise anytime I am in need of a great lawyer. I live on Staten Island and the trip to Manhattan was well worth the time spent.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
