On November 7, 2015, attorneys from across the State of New York met in Albany, New York, to participate in the New York State Bar Association House of Delegates Meeting. These Delegates represent the legal community from local bar associations and districts and come together several times a year to discuss important issues impacting the legal profession and the greater community. At this meeting, the Delegates discussed preparation for a possible New York State Constitutional Convention, changes to the manner in which the legal community addresses professional discipline, modification of how members of the judiciary may receive retirement benefits and other important topics.
Bashian & Farber Partner, James L. Hyer, Esq. commented on the meeting:
“It was an honor to have been appointed as a delegate to represent the Westchester County Bar Association and to have the opportunity to participate in such an important body. We discussed some very important issues pertaining to the legal community, which discussions will continue during this next week, and I look forward to continuing my service with the House of Delegates in the future.”
