Staten Island Legal Services presented its inaugural Vito J. Titone Award for Legal Excellence on April 19 to retired Court of Appeals Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick. The award is named for the only Staten Islander to sit on the Court of Appeals. Governor Mario Cuomo, who nominated both Ciparick and Titone to the Court of Appeals, presented the award at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Staten Island Legal Services wishes to thank Gov. Cuomo, Judge Ciparick, and the many community members and supporters who joined us at the luncheon.
