❑ Bleakley Platt & Schmidt, LLP is pleased to announce that Annette G. Hasapidis has joined the firm as Of Counsel and Co-Chair of the Appellate Practice Group. Ms. Hasapidis focuses her practice in the area of civil appellate litigation and strategic trial consultation in complex civil litigation for clients before state and federal trial courts in New York and Connecticut. She has extensive appellate experience, as she has appeared on more than 320 appeals. Ms. Hasapidis has also served as a court-appointed guardian at the Appellate Division level.

Interview of the Month
by Susan Edwards Colson, Esq.
The Westchester Women’s Bar Association is committed to fostering an environment where women thrive as lawyers, community members, mentors and, ultimately, leaders. As we move through fall and into the 2016 presidential election, we might pause to reflect on the achievements of women, particularly local women, of the past. In September, we devoted our general membership meeting to issues surrounding voting. No small issue when we stop to think about the significance the ability to vote has for women’s rights. Many thanks to co-chairs, Joelle Burton and Alayne Katz, who assembled a panel of speakers and administered an ongoing voter registration program, in conjunction with the League of Women Voters established program. I signed up and will spend a few hours registering voters at Pace Law School.continue »
