[*1]In the Matter of Sara Winslow, an Attorney. (Attorney Registration No. 2766079.)
Calendar Date: March 1, 2021
Before: Lynch, J.P., Clark, Aarons, Reynolds Fitzgerald and Colangelo, JJ.
Sara Winslow, San Francisco, California, pro se.
Monica A. Duffy, Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, Albany, for Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department.
Sara Winslow was admitted to practice by this Court in 1996 and lists a business address in San Francisco, California with the Office of Court Administration. Winslow now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a]). The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department (hereinafter AGC) advises that it does not oppose Winslow’s application.
Upon reading Winslow’s affidavit sworn to December 30, 2020 and filed January 4, 2021, and upon reading the February 18, 2021 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Winslow is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant her application and accept her resignation.
Lynch, J.P., Clark, Aarons, Reynolds Fitzgerald and Colangelo, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that Sara Winslow’s application for permission to resign is granted and her nondisciplinary resignation is accepted; and it is further
ORDERED that Sara Winslow’s name is hereby stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law of the State of New York, effective immediately, and until further order of this Court (see generally Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [b]); and it is further
ORDERED that Sara Winslow is commanded to desist and refrain from the practice of law in any form in the State of New York, either as principal or as agent, clerk or employee of another; and Winslow is hereby forbidden to appear as an attorney or counselor-at-law before any court, judge, justice, board, commission or other public authority, or to give to another an opinion as to the law or its application, or any advice in relation thereto, or to hold herself out in any way as an attorney and counselor-at-law in this State; and it is further
ORDERED that Sara Winslow shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, surrender to the Office of Court Administration any Attorney Secure Pass issued to her.
