Congratulations to Karen I. Wu, attorney at Perlman & Perlman and co-chair of AABANY’s Pro Bono and Community Service Committee, who on January 26, at a reception held during the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) Annual Meeting, received NYSBA’s 2012 Outstanding Young Lawyer Award.
Family, friends, colleagues and NYSBA leaders and officers came out for the occasion. NYSBA Young Lawyers Section Chair James Barnes kicked off the awards presentation. NYSBA President Vincent Doyle presented the award.
Quoting James Barnes from the printed program for the event:
[Karen’s] accomplishments as a practitioner, service to the profession, and volunteer work in the community make her a deserving recipient of this award…. The dedication she has shown as an attorney and concerned citizen provides a shining example to young professionals.
Karen’s well-deserved recognition represents an honor for AABANY. Last year, Anting Wang, currently co-chair of the Women’s Committee, received the NYSBA Outstanding Young Lawyer Award. For AABANY to count such remarkable leaders within its ranks of young lawyers is a true blessing indeed. We hope other young lawyers within AABANY will follow their lead and make significant contributions to the profession and community.
The AALDEF Lunar New Year Gala will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers. Among the recipients of the Justice in Action Award this year will be Parkin Lee. Parkin is an active member of AABANY and NAPABA, and we congratulate him on this great honor.
