The firm was uniquely honored and privileged that Hon. Sol Wachtler, Former Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, visited our offices on Thursday, October 25, 2007. Judge Wachtler met with the firm’s attorneys for most of the morning, discussing the procedures for filing appeals in the Court of Appeals, the nature of the issues the Court deals with in appeals, and important cases decided by the Court. Judge Wachtler also shared his experiences as the Chief Judge of the highest court in the State. His visit was a fascinating opportunity for our attorneys to meet one of New York’s leading jurists.
As Chief Judge, Sol Wachtler wrote many groundbreaking legal opinions, many of which have since been followed in other states, as well as in the courts of New York State. Judge Wachtler is an Adjunct Professor at Touro Law School and Chief Executive of Comprehensive Alternative Dispute Resolution Enterprise (CADRE), an alternative dispute resolution firm based in Great Neck.
