Patrick J. Higgins, a partner at Powers & Santola, was the recent recipient of the President’s Award by the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers.
The award was presented to Patrick for his commitment and dedication to providing continuing legal education (CLE) classes for attorneys and colleagues across New York State. Patrick chaired a statewide CLE tour on Trial Preparation last fall.
The classes provided engaging and educational instruction for attorneys on ways to improve their techniques and practices prior to trial. In addition to Patrick, numerous other fantastic speakers were recruited for the tour, including Court of Appeals Judge Eugene Pigott.
The tour had a fantastic turnout and Patrick is already planning another round of programs for the Fall of 2014 on Liens.
Patrick has also been named as one of AVVO’s “Top Contributors” in the field of Medical Malpractice for 2014. This is due to Patrick’s active participation in providing quality legal answers to individuals seeking aid on AVVO’s website.
Thank you, Patrick, for all your hard work and congratulations!
