The House of Delegates is composed of representatives from various sections, committees, and local bar associations, as well as NYSBA officers and elected delegates from across New York State. It meets periodically to discuss and vote on various issues, including proposed changes to the legal profession, the association’s stance on legislation, and other matters affecting the legal community in New York State.

While the association is gearing up for the departure of President Sherry Levin Wallach, that means that Brooklyn is about set to watch one of its own, Domenick Napoletano, take over the esteemed legal organization.

As president-elect, Napoletano participated in discussions and voting on various matters, presenting reports, and contributing to the decision-making process. He also has been working closely with Levin Wallach in ongoing projects and initiatives as he prepares to assume the role of president.

In 2020, Napoletano co-chaired the NYSBA’s Emergency Task Force for Solo and Small Firm Practitioners, supporting members facing challenges during the pandemic. With experience as a former chair of the General Practice Section and co-chair of the Civil Practice Law and Rules Committee, he has addressed various issues within the association.

Napoletano’s legal practice focuses on complex commercial litigation and appellate work, including real property, tenancy, occupancy issues and class action lawsuits. He has held leadership positions in several legal organizations and is actively involved in his church and the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. Napoletano has been practicing law since 1981 after graduating from Hofstra Law School and holds a degree from Brooklyn College.

House of Delegates meetings occur quarterly around NY State. The next meeting will take place at the Otesaga Resort Hotel on Saturday, June 10.
