This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in New York.

Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Kenneth's comment:“What the reprimand does not include is that my managing attorney communicated with our client for 3 months prior to withdrawing from the case informing her that she did not have a valid claim for disability and although we were not going to attend her hearing and could not find another attorney to represent her, we would continue to request her medical records for her free of charge, waiving the cost of her records that we even paid for. Two weeks before the hearing we withdrew as stated.”
