IN RE: Salvatore DE LELLO, an Attorney at Law (Attorney No. 013241983)

Decided: June 21, 2017


The Disciplinary Review Board having filed with the Court its decision in DRB 16–139, concluding that SALVATORE DE LELLO of PISCATAWAY, who was admitted to the bar of this State in 1983, should be suspended from the practice of law for a period of three months for violating RPC 1.9(a)(conflict of interest), RPC 8.4(b)(commission of a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer's honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer), and RPC 8.4(d)(conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice);

And the Court having determined from its review of the matter that the charge of violating RPC 8.4(b) should be dismissed for lack of clear and convincing evidence and that a censure is the appropriate quantum of discipline for respondent's unethical conduct;

And good cause appearing;

It is ORDERED that SALVATORE DE LELLO is hereby censured;  and it is further

ORDERED that the entire record of this matter be made a permanent part of respondent's file as an attorney at law of this State;  and it is further

ORDERED that respondent reimburse the Disciplinary Oversight Committee for appropriate administrative costs and actual expenses incurred in the prosecution of this matter, as provided in Rule 1:20–17.
