I am fortunate to announce that December 2022 concludes my time as a Partner at MCV Law. Similarly, at the end of this legislative session, my time as Co-Chair of the New York Workers' Compensation Alliance and leadership roles at the New York Injured Workers' Bar Association and New York State Bar Association concludes. And I will withdraw from the active practice of law and participation in the many other associations I have enjoyed over the last forty-plus years.
I thank every person whom I have assisted. The courage shown by Injured Workers and their families as they navigate the law and process always impresses me. You have bestowed upon me knowledge and wisdom that I would not otherwise have had.
Likewise, I thank the people I have worked with over the years. Without the brilliant assistance of the clerks, paralegals, administrative assistants, administrators, lawyers, and mentors, I would have accomplished much less. Unfortunately, while we have helped many Injured Workers, their families, and policymakers, the work is incomplete. I know, however, that the teams I leave at MCV Law, the Injured Workers' Bar Association of New York, and the New York Workers' Compensation Alliance are up to the task.
While I have other endeavors planned, I will always be available to offer advice and counsel when asked. To that end, I will become "Of-Counsel" to MCV Law for at least a year.
