Question and Answer

I am an out of state attorney who is admitted in NJ, and recently claimed exemption code 90. Am I still exempt from pro bono under exemption code 90 if I do volunteer legal work in NJ?

No. You are not eligible for exemption code 90 if you are practicing law in New Jersey even on a volunteer basis. However, if you volunteer 25 hours of pro bono service for one of the approved organizations, you are exempt under exemption code 88 in the following year.
