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 
Honorable
Daniel D. Angiolillo

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


Q: You have been a long time member ofthe WWBA. Can you please tell us why you joined and detail the contributions of the WWBA in the Westchester legal community.

A: Susan, first I would like to thank you and the Westchester Women’s Bar Association for the honor of being interviewed for this month’s newsletter.  The simple answer to your first question is- Karen Bell.  She invited me to join the Women’s Bar.  Karen was serving as law guardian (attorney for the child), for two teenage brothers on one of my Integrated Domestic Violence cases in the early 2000’s when at some point during the case she asked if I was a member of the Women’s Bar.  In response to my answer she said you need to join and then extended an invitation.  I made the right decision and joined.  The Women’s Bar provides an invaluable network in the legal community for its members, especially for those that aspire to judicial service.  The Bar expands opportunities for women and advances the status of its members in the profession.  The members assist and promote each other in many ways- legal positions, referrals, awards, judicial positions or even a simple phone call to a law clerk seeking information. Judges in Westchester support the Women’s Bar.  By the way, Karen’s advocacy on that case was extraordinary.  I admired her as an attorney and as a person, and miss her presence at our meetings and dinners.

President's Message

by Lisa Denig, Esq.

      It’s hard to believe that 2017 is almost over and we are moving into a New Year!  The prospect of starting fresh, setting goals and making resolutions always energizes me and I look forward to the exciting opportunities that a new calendar year always brings. However, my list of resolutions does not simply include the standard “eat better,” “exercise more,” and “be more efficient” objectives that many people set for themselves on January 1.  No, my goals this year (and, yes, I DO make a list of resolutions – goal setting is an integral part of my life plan) include lofty objectives for us to reach as an organization. The WWBA is an amazingly well-run and vibrant group; but we can always climb higher.
