MOUNT HOLLY – The New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics has scheduled hearing dates for attorney disciplinary charges that were filed against Manchester-based elder law attorney Robert Novy, a former law partner of Toms River mayor Tom Kelaher.
Robert Novy, who was arrested in October on criminal charges of money laundering, contempt of court and theft by unlawful taking, is set to appear before an attorney ethics disciplinary tribunal to face separate attorney disciplinary charges alleging violations of state Rules of Professional Conduct for licensed attorneys in early 2017.
Disciplinary charges against the embattled Ocean County attorney and former Republican donor will be heard in January, according to a notice provided to OCP by the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics.
January 9th, 2017 through January 12th, 2017 have been reserved as hearing dates for the Novy case, and attorney ethics officials said that the week of January 23rd can be used if more time is required.
The hearings are open to the public and will take place at the Burlington County Superior Court, 49 Rancocas Road Mt Holly, NJ 08060, in a yet to be determined courtroom, beginning at 9:00 AM each day, according to the notice.
The attorney discipline charges were originally filed back in April of this year. Douglas J. Hull, another attorney employed at the Novy firm, is currently facing his own set of disciplinary charges in addition to Mr. Novy.
