I was very proud to host a “Law Day” event at St. Joseph Church in New Rochelle on June 30, 2013. It is often difficult for working families to afford an attorney when they need legal advice. I was pleased to bring in some pro bono attorneys for a few hours to answer legal questions for the hard-working people who live in the West End neighborhood of New Rochelle.
I must thank Empire Justice Center (Daniel Villena, Esq.) for answering immigration law questions, and Legal Services of Hudson Valley (Shary Enid Sanchez, Esq.) for answering general civil law questions. I also want to thank New Rochelle attorney Giovanna Fernandez Harswick, Esq. who also met with guests. And a special thank you to our host at St. Joseph Fr. O’Halloran, and my parish priest Fr. Biglin, together these helpful priests made the event a success. As always, Yolanda Valencia and Anna Lisa Negro from my staff were a big help. We plan to hold additional “Law Day” events in the future at other locations in my district (New Rochelle & Pelham).
