Meet the Officers of the WWBA:
A Night of Networking

On September 28, 2016, the New Lawyers, Networking, and Membership Committees presented, “Meet the Officers of the WWBA: A Night of Networking.”  A very big thank you to UBS, and in particular Cristina DeBrito, Michael Guild, and Eric Berger, who in participation with the WWBA, helped present the event.

❑ On October 11, 2017, Justice Mark C. Dillon of the Appellate Division, 2nd Dept., was “vouched in” to help hear a case at the Court of Appeals in Albany. Vouching in is a rarely-used procedure where the state’s Chief Judge, Hon. Janet DiFiore, selects Appellate Division justices to substitute for Court of Appeals judges that have recused off a case. The appeal here was Bransten v. State of New York. 


Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Amanda Fried

by Susan L. Pollet
Chair of the Archive 
and Historian Committee

Q: Tell us why you joined the Westchester Women’s Bar Association, and how you have participated in it over the years?

A: I joined the WWBA to be part of a diverse community of Renaissance lawyers who share my commitment to fairness. It is only in the last few years that I was recruited to the WWBA Board of Directors. However, I’ve served in numerous capacities during that tenure. I am currently a Vice President, but I was the Treasurer for the two years prior. I am in my second year as Co-Chair of the Programs Committee, and I was the Committee Chair for the Annual Dinner Souvenir Journal for three (long) years.

President's Message

by Lisa Denig, Esq.

      Of course, it is impossible for me to write this month’s column on anything else but the fact that March is Women’s History Month. Established in 1987 by the U.S. Congress, Women’s History Month gives individuals and organizations an opportunity to focus on the progress women have made in our country and the amazing courage of those trailblazing women who got us to this point. 

      March 8th is International Women’s Day but all month long the National Women’s History Project will celebrate women who fight all forms of discrimination.  The theme is “Nevertheless She Persisted.”  Many exhibits and programs will be open this month in various Westchester County cities, towns and villages and I encourage you to find one that appeals to you (and your daughter? niece? granddaughter?) as a way to celebrate the achievements of women through the years.
