Westchester County and Westchester Supreme Court honor Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Pepper Hamilton for their work on ambitious Attorney for a Day Program
On July 10, the Pro Bono Local Action Committee for the Ninth Judicial District held an awards ceremony in recognition of the work of Pepper Hamilton LLP, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Westchester County attorney Peter Spino on the Westchester Supreme Court's Attorney for a Day Program.
The program was launched in September 2016 to provide counsel, at no cost, to Westchester County homeowners who cannot afford legal representation in residential foreclosure actions. Through the program, the Regeneron legal department, Pepper Hamilton, and Peter Spino - under the supervision of court attorney J. Marshall Mangold - have defended the county's most vulnerable citizens in residential foreclosure actions.
Ninth Judicial District Administrative Judge Alan D. Scheinkman, Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Justice Initiatives Edwina G. Mendelson, and Supreme Court Justices Sam D. Walker and Lewis J. Lubell attended the July 10 awards ceremony. Joseph J. LaRosa, senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, accepted the award on Regeneron's behalf. Partners Kenneth J. King and Samuel J. Abate Jr. accepted the award on Pepper Hamilton's behalf.
Deputy Westchester County Executive Kevin Plunkett also presented a proclamation, on behalf of County Executive Robert P. Astorino, honoring the Attorney for a Day Program and declaring July 10 as "Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Pepper Hamilton LLP Recognition Day."
