I am pleased to announce that in a meeting held on December 17, 2008, I was elected President to the New York Social Security Bar Association. This organization, established over 25 years ago, provides attorneys who practice in the field of Social Security Law the opportunity to discuss trends and changes in the law and administrative processes. Once a year the membership nominates an Administrative Law Judge to be honored for his or her role in furthering the interests of the disabled claimants.
