The Nassau County Bar Association New Lawyers Committee frequently schedules luncheons for local judges and new lawyers in order to facilitate stronger relationships between lawyers and the bench. Familiarity between judges and lawyers helps both parties understand each other better in court—and ultimately, can create better outcomes (and waste less time) throughout the legal process.
The luncheon includes judges from different divisions to sit and eat with
the most recent members of the NCBA. One recent gathering featured judges
from the Commercial Division and Family Court. Wisselman & Associates
attorney Amanda Rose Green regularly attends these luncheons in order
to become more familiar with the various local judges, and help create
a better Nassau County legal system.
