Hartford, Conn., April 11, 2018 – Day Pitney LLP is pleased to announce that two of its attorneys have been named to the Connecticut Law Tribune's fourth annual list of Professional Excellence Award winners. The Awards "highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the Connecticut legal community."
Chase T. Rogers, former Chief Justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court, has been named the "Best Officiator" for her accomplishments as a judge. This new category recognizes an officiator who "went above and beyond the call of duty to be fair and judicious in the process of decision making." In March this year, she joined Day Pitney as a litigation partner in the firm' Hartford office and currently serves as chair of the Appellate Practice group.
In addition, Hartford-based litigation associate Daniel J. Raccuia has been named one of the "New Leaders in the Law." This category includes lawyers under the age of 40 "who have excelled in the courtroom, client service and cultivation, service to bar associations and performing pro bono work or community service in a volunteer capacity."
The honorees will be recognized in a special editorial section in May and at an awards reception, also in May, in Hartford, Connecticut.
