The Brooklyn Bar Association held a Meet and Greet with Breon Peace, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, in Brooklyn Heights on Wednesday night.

The event was co-sponsored by the Kings County Criminal Bar Association.

Members from both events got an opportunity to mingle with the U.S. Attorney and his staff prior to a discussion with Michael Farkas, a Brooklyn Bar Association board member and past president of the Kings County Criminal Bar Association.

While some were familiar with the U.S., many members were meeting the Brooklyn-born attorney for the first time.

He began working at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in 1996 as an associate and after a stint as an Assistant U.S. Attorney For the Eastern District from 1999 through 2002, Peace went back to Cleary Gottlieb and eventually was named partner in 2007.
