Persons admitted to the bar of the State of New York sometimes seek to resign as attorneys and counselors-at-law. Some attorneys, who still reside in the state, no longer practice and they too wish to voluntarily resign and avoid payment of the registration fee. Attorneys facing misconduct charges and contemplating involuntary resignation should consult with counsel and submit their resignation in writing through the appropriate Grievance Committee. There is an alternative to either payment of the required biennial registration fee or voluntary resignation from the bar that applies in a limited number of cases, namely, certification that the attorney has retired from the active practice of law. An attorney may certify that he or she is retired from the practice of law when, other than the performance of legal services without compensation, he or she does not practice law in any respect, in any jurisdiction, and does not intend ever to engage in acts that constitute the practice of law 22 NYCRR
