The staff at a law firm is intimately engaged with its community. We’re there in the best of times, the challenging times and everything between.

And so the efforts of a community to improve the lives of its residents are efforts that are meaningful to us, too. Here are a few examples of what we’ve been up to in our communities:

The Leadership Dutchess Program

May 29, 2024

Senior Associate Christina Mazzarella for completed the Leadership Dutchess Program with the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Leadership Program is dedicated to educating and motivating citizens to serve in leadership roles within our community. This program was designed to foster the development of a group of professionals who grow and learn together over a nine-month period. Program sessions are conducted by prominent individuals from the public and private sector, sharing their knowledge on real-world topics of leadership/ municipal concerns impacting the Hudson Valley Region. Program volunteers and participants recently celebrated their accomplishments at a special event hosted by Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue. Congratulations to all and especially our own Christina Mazzarella!
