2020 WCBA Member Testimonials:

Gary B. Friedman, Esq.: "I am writing to express my appreciation and gratitude for the tremendous job that you and the WCBA are doing during this public health crisis. The webinars and other programs that you are offering targeted at trying to practice law in these trying terms are terrific. I don't think there is another county bar association which is providing such important, timely information to its membership. I rarely say this about any organization that I belong to but I am proud to be a member of the WCBA. Keep up the great work."

James Licata: "Speaking as a sponsor and non-legal member of the community, the Westchester County Bar Association is a welcoming association that provides excellent online legal, informational, and social experiences. During the pandemic, your 'coffee talk' was one of the first and best outreaches that personally helped me break up the social isolation and stay connected to the community. Thank you Isabel, Roni, and Wendy for your thought leadership and mastering the nuances of electronic content distribution."

Ruth Raisfeld, Esq.: "I want to commend the WCBA for providing true assistance to its members during the pandemic both on CLE and logistical and emotional support for members and the community. Very impressive work during this pandemic, easily demonstrating the value of membership."
