We are proud of our attorneys in Suffolk County who have demonstrated their active commitment to pro bono in the true spirit of volunteerism. In gratitude for the dedication shown by our pro bono attorneys, the Suffolk County Bar Association (SCBA) (Hauppauge, N.Y), in collaboration with Nassau Suffolk Law Services’ Pro Bono Project (Islandia, N.Y.)and the Suffolk County Bar Pro Bono Foundation, hosted a Pro Bono Recognition Luncheon on Thursday October 23, 2014 during National Pro Bono Week. Attorneys who completed a pro bono case during the last 12 months were invited to the event to salute their generous donation of time and expertise. Distinguished guests included Judge C. Randall Hinrichs, District Administrative Judge for Suffolk County, who addressed the honorees and commended them on their dedication to pro bono representation of disabled and low income litigants in Suffolk County. Congratulations to All!

It is with great sadness that Nassau Suffolk Law Services and the Pro Bono Project acknowledge the passing of Val Cherkoss. He was honored recently as Pro Bono Attorney of the Month in November 2013 http://nslawservices.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Val-Cherkoss.pdf. His generosity of spirit and legal expertise easily earned him this distinction in service. Val was a person who shared our vision and the pro bono spirit. He will be greatly missed.
