NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK U.S. BANKRUPTCY COURT

Chief Judge Margaret Cangilos-Ruiz, Judge Robert E. Littlefield and Judge Diane Davis thank the attorneys and student practitioners listed below for their public service to parties in need of representation in the bankruptcy court.  Four attorneys performed pro bono services in three or more cases, namely:  M. Lettie Dickerson (3); Susan Esce (4); Michael Jude O'Connor (16); and Michael Toomey (4).

The Board of Judges has determined that attorneys offering pro bono services during 2017 will be recognized at the Twenty-Second Annual Bankruptcy Seminar to be held on October 20 and 21 at the Otesaga Resort Hotel.  As in past years, a placard including the names of all the attorneys will be prominently displayed at the seminar.  In addition, each provider will receive a commemorative paperweight etched with the court's seal.

The Board of Judges has also determined that attorneys who present financial literacy programs to local school groups and other community organizations will be recognized in the Bankruptcy Court's Quarterly Honor Roll of Pro Bono Providers.  For more information about the Credit Abuse Resistance Education program, or to see the newly revised CARE presentation materials check the website www.care4yourfuture.org.
