The Disciplinary Board is fairly clear about what it expects from attorneys seeking reinstatement. Reinstatement is generally controlled by Pennsylvania Rule of Disciplinary Enforcement 218. A suspended attorney may seek reinstatement nine months before the expiration of the suspension. A disbarred attorney must wait at least five years before seeking reinstatement. The mandatory requirements of the rule include: 36 hours of CLE credits, ­including the “Bridge the Gap” course and 12 ethics credits taken within one year of filing the petition for reinstatement; costs of prior discipline paid; all payments made to the Client Security Fund; and the appropriate reinstatement petition, reinstatement questionnaire, and waivers of confidentiality. When seeking reinstatement, the attorney is required to provide copies of a number of materials related to their discipline, including copies of board recommendations, orders and proof that notice of discipline was sent to their clients.
