Bay Ridge Lawyers Association is set to honor a trio of distinguished past presidents who played pivotal roles during the COVID-19 pandemic at their 2023 Annual Cocktail Reception and Dance.

Slated for June 15, 2023, from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Vanderbilt at South Beach on Staten Island, the event promises to be a night of recognition and celebration. The honorees include Mary Ann Stathopoulos, William Gillen, and the association’s current president, Dominic Famulari.

“This year it is in honor of three incredible past presidents, our colleagues, our friends – Mary Ann Stathopoulos, William Gillen, and Dominic Famulari,” said past president Stephen Chiaino. “This group kept us together through an unimaginable pandemic. The association is now bigger, stronger, better for all three of their efforts. We need our members to turn out, I understand it is going to be in Staten Island, but if you can be there for them, we’d really appreciate the support.”

Stathopoulos, an alumna of Southwestern University Law and NYU undergrad, presently serves as a senior corporate counsel for global compliance at Cisco Systems Inc., earning praise for her meticulous attention to detail in contract review.
