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 
Angela Morcone Giannini

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


Q:  Please tell us about your involvement with the WWBA - why you became a member, and how you have contributed to the organization over the years.

A:  I have been a member of the WWBA for over 20 years.  I was introduced to the organization by my law partner, Lucille Fontana.  Initially, I volunteered for different events and then took on the role of co-chair of the Litigation committee.  That committee had been dormant for years and I was active in resurrecting it with Past Presidents Donna Frosco and Lisa Bluestein.  Proudly, today Litigation continues to be an active committee in our organization.  I started the Litigation Tip column for our newsletter which informs our members of new statutes, cases and reminders on litigation tips.  I have also held positions of recording secretary, state delegate, chair of the Legislation committee and this year, treasurer.

President's Message

by Lisa Denig, Esq.

      You may have noticed that we have “Gone Red” this issue in recognition of the fact that February is “Heart Month.”  February was first designated as “Heart Month” by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 and has been recognized as such ever since.

      The purpose of “Heart Month” is to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease and the numbers are staggering – on average, someone dies from cardiovascular disease every 40 seconds.  While many people believe that heart disease affects mainly men, this is a myth – heart disease is the number one leading cause of death for women and roughly the same number of women and men die each year from heart attacks or strokes.
