❑ 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.

An Interview with 

Lisa M. Denig

Susan L. Pollet
Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee


Q: You just finished your year as WWBA President. Please tell us the accomplishments of which you are most proud?

A: Before my presidency began, my Executive Officers and I met and highlighted three things that we wanted to focus on during the year:  social media, more “social” or fun events, and reaching out to younger lawyers.  I am proud to say that we made headway in all three areas.  As to social media, we started a WWBA Instagram account and have actively posted to it and our other social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter all year.  This has increased our social media presence and helped us get information regarding events and programs to new audiences.  In regards to planning more social events, we successfully added many programs and outings this year including a trip to see a Broadway show, a wine tasting, paint night, a Learn to Spin class, and our popular Book Club.  These events have given members the opportunity to network and socialize in a less formal environment and are often named by members as some of their favorite get-togethers of the past year.  Finally, we reached out to Pace Law School and signed up over 50 law students, many of whom have become very active in our group.  This is important as these younger students are the future of our organization. 

President's Message

by Kim Berg, Esq.


The WWBA 2018-2019 year kicked off with our extraordinary celebration and swearing in of officers at the WWBA Annual Dinner at the  beautiful Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club on June 6, 2018.  In my speech, I discussed the importance of having historical perspective and how, with reflection on past events and hindsight being “20/20” we can use historical perspective to set the guideposts for our future course. Having had the tremendous benefit of serving as President Elect last year under the tutelage of Past President Lisa Denig, I have spent the summer months planning and setting in motion the WWBA’s future course for the upcoming year.
