The Nassau Lawyers’ Association of Long Island, formed in 1947, is an organization of attorneys joined together for fellowship. Its purpose is to aid in the administration of justice and render assistance, wherever possible, to the practicing attorney.
With over two hundred fifty members, the Nassau Lawyers’ Association ranks as one of the largest bar associations of its kind in the country. Our membership is made up of distinguished members of the bar, who specialize in fields such as matrimonial law, tort law, corporate law, construction law, trusts and estates, and real estate law. The members are always available to assist each other and offer advice in their particular field.
We pride ourselves on the informality of our monthly dinner meetings held on the third Wednesday of the month. The programs at our meetings are both informative and entertaining. Our speakers have included judges of the trial and appellate courts, public officials and fellow attorneys in private practice and public service. On the lighter side, we have enjoyed entertainment at our St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, June Lawn Party, Judiciary Night, Christmas Party, and Annual Dinner Dance. Our organization sponsors a seminar each year, and past seminars have been held in London, Acapulco, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
We have sponsored and supported needed legislation and we have met with judges for the purpose of preserving the rights of clients and lawyers. The organization has also assisted law students through its scholarship fund. In order to support young attorneys and law students, we reach out to the local law schools to enlist members, as our organization provides numerous networking opportunities for lawyers just starting their careers on Long Island. One or our goals is to bring members of the judiciary together with members of the practicing bar. We hope you will join us for good fellowship and support the activities of our organization.

We look forward to your membership and active participation.
