BEING A PARENT AND AN ATTORNEY

The headline the other day read "Attorney denied hearing delay appears with baby" and here is a link to the full story:

A couple of times I had to bring my then elementary age school kids to court. One I remember was a conference at Supreme Court and another I remember for an administrative hearing.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

The Nassau County Bar Association sponsors various pro bono and volunteer opportunities, one of which I have volunteered for and starting the end of this month:

"Student Mentors
 
Provide valuable adult guidance and serve as a role model for at-risk middle school students in one-on-one sessions at a local middle school. The commitment is twice a month for less than an hour, but the rewards you receive are immeasurable. Mentors are always in demand."

As I read in today's Newsday about many issues Sandy victims are still having, particularly with New York Rising, I pass along these links to a group I discovered during the last Sandy clinic at the Nassau County Bar Association - they may be able to assist homeowners to link up with architects who will prepare plans for reconstruction:
