On Tuesday, March 5, Rivkin Radler was recognized as a Top Pro Bono Provider for 2023 by the Nassau County Bar Association Access to Justice Committee at its Annual Pro Bono Recognition Dinner.

Rivkin Radler has been honored as a Top Pro Bono Provider in the large firm category since the program’s inception in 2015.

This year, 19 firms were recognized for providing free legal representation and information to indigent individuals on Long Island; Rivkin Radler was one of four firms acknowledged in the Large Firms category. Honorees within a firm were selected based on the number of volunteers and hours they contributed in 2023.

“Rivkin Radler understands the value of giving back to the community through volunteer and pro bono legal services. We are proud to be recognized by the leadership of the Nassau County Bar Association for the ninth consecutive year,” said Managing Partner Evan Krinick.

The event’s keynote speakers included Hon. Rowan D. Wilson, chief judge of the Court of Appeals of the State of New York; Norman St. George, first deputy chief administrative judge; Vito M. DeStefano, Nassau County administrative judge; and Conrad D. Singer, Nassau County Supreme Court justice.

The NCBA Access to Justice Committee and Pro Bono department of the NCBA, directed by Madeline Mullane, work alongside Nassau Suffolk Law Services – a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping low-income Long Islanders in crisis access justice and The Safe Center LI – a nonprofit organization that works to protect, assist and empower victims of family violence and sexual assault – to develop innovative programs that provide free or reduced-fee access to legal counsel, advice, and information.
