The Nassau County Bar Association (NCBA), The Safe Center LI (TSCLI) and Nassau Suffolk Law Services (NSLS) have named Rivkin Radler a top law firm in pro bono service for 2017. This is the fourth consecutive year the firm has been recognized.
The annual award, which ranks law firms by categories based on size, also ranks firms within their peer group based on the total number of pro bono service hours.
Sixteen of the firm’s attorneys received recognition, including Brian Bank, Michelle Bholan, William Cornachio, Ryan Goldberg, Jeffrey Greener, Ada Kozicz, Matthew Lampert, Sean McAloon, Frank Misiti, Jason Romeo, Alan Rutkin, Jonathan Salm, Brian Schlosser, Matthew Spero, Frank Valverde and John Vobis Jr.
“Rivkin Radler has a long tradition of public service,” said Alan Rutkin, head of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee. “From partners to associates, our attorneys understand that pro bono work rounds out their practice, making them better lawyers and human beings.”
Access to Justice Committee Co-Chair Joseph R. Harbeson, said, “Attorneys, as professionals, have a duty to help those less fortunate try to obtain justice. The top Long Island law firms and attorneys we recognize today are the leaders that embrace this calling.” The NCBA Access to Justice Committee is a joint effort of the NCBA, TSC LI, NSLS and other legal service providers.
