On November 9th, managing partner, Wendy Samuelson was honored by Blank Slate Media’s first annual Women of Distinction of Nassau County awards ceremony. The keynote speaker and honoree was Justice Madeline Singas, the former Nassau County District Attorney, who has just been elevated to Justice of the New York Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state. The Williston Times recognizes the women who are leaders in their fields. Of the 43 trailblazing women of influence who were recognized, Ms. Samuelson was the only matrimonial and family law attorney. For the past 27 years, Ms. Samuelson has dedicated her career to educating and enriching her community, while serving those who need an advocate during a difficult time in their life --whether they are going through a divorce or custody matter – to help them pursue a brighter future.
