More than 10 years ago, we stood under the American flag in the library of One St. Andrew’s Plaza surrounded by members of the Southern District U.S. Attorney’s Office, family and friends, raised our right hands, and were sworn in as assistant U.S. attorneys. The U.S. attorney administered the oath of office, and we swore to defend the constitution and faithfully carry out the duties of a federal prosecutor. We were given a plaque quoting the words of former Southern District U.S. Attorney Whitney North Seymour Jr., that read, in part, “To be an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York requires commitment to absolute integrity and fair play” and “a total dedication to the public interest.” This plaque also quoted Thomas Paine to instill in us that,“to do good is my religion.”
