‘Wills for Heroes’ Pro Bono Program Held
The annual “Wills for Heroes New Jersey” pro bono program was held on April 28 at the Hainesport Fire Department in Hainesport. Among the volunteer attorneys was Daniela P. Catrocho, an associate with Day Pitney in Parsippany, according to a firm announcement. Wills for Heroes is a national program locally sponsored by the Young Lawyers Division of the New Jersey State Bar Association. The program brings volunteer attorneys directly to first responders to provide wills, living wills, and financial and health-care powers of attorney free of charge. The program serves firefighters, police officers and paramedics, and their spouses or domestic partners. The announcement noted that 19 wills, financial powers of attorney, health-care powers of attorney, and advance health-care directives were drafted for the responders at no cost.
Capehart Scatchard Cooks to Fight Hunger in South Jersey
Capehart Scatchard attorneys Ashley Albano, Christopher Chu, Maria Dal Santo and Keith Nagy recently participated in the seventh annual Food Bank of South Jersey’s “Hunger Games” food competition at the food bank headquarters in Pennsauken on April 24. The event is a team-building challenge, with the proceeds benefiting the food bank’s hunger-relief programs for children. At the event, 15 corporate four-member teams received one box each of mystery ingredients—food items that the Food Bank typically distributes through its pantry network—and had 45 minutes to cook a dish for three judges in a live cooking competition. Each team had a culinary advisor. Capehart’s team, comprised of all first-time competitors, placed in the top three at the event and lost to the winning team by one point, the firm said.
Laddey Clark Hosts ‘Take Our Children to Work’ Day
Laddey Clark & Ryan in Sparta hosted its first “Take Your Children to Work Day” program on April 25 for the children of attorneys and staff. There were 17 children between the ages of 8 and 18 attending, the firm said. Following a welcome and introduction by senior partner Andrew Fraser and managing partner Thomas Ryan, the young people heard a panel discussion by three attorneys in different practice areas, and a separate panel of other professionals who work in the law firm, including paralegals, legal assistants, the firm’s controller and marketing manager. Highlights of the day included a visit by two Superior Court judges and a law firm-themed scavenger hunt. The day ended with a mock trial, The People v. The Evil Queen, in which Snow White’s nemesis was put on trial for poisoning her. The court and counsel were all portrayed by attorneys, but the children themselves portrayed Snow White and the witnesses, and served as the jury, which ended up convicting the Evil Queen.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward gave the keynote at the NJSBA's Annual Meeting and Convention in Atlantic City last week.
