Message from Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman

Chief Judge Jonathan LippmanNew York lawyers have an extraordinary history of helping those in need. We hope that eligible attorneys will embrace the role of Attorney Emeritus and put their valuable skills and experience to work on behalf of the many New Yorkers who cannot afford legal assistance.

On behalf of the organized bar, legal services programs and the court system, I look forward to the growth of the Attorney Emeritus Program and to personally recognizing every attorney who completes this exemplary service.
