Kings County legal eagles rubbed shoulders honored Brooklyn’s most honorable at the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association Judiciary Night on Feb. 6. 

Members of the legal society toasted several newly elected judges, including Supreme Court Justices Rosemarie Montalbano and Steven Mostofsky, State Claims Court Judge Lillian Wan, and Civil Court Judge Derefim Neckles . 

“The event was wonderful and very well attended,” said Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association President Meryl Schwartz. 

Appellate Court Judge Alan Scheinkman treated attendees to a discussion on recent events at the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court. 

“It was very informative and we appreciate him taking the time to come to our event,” Schwartz said.

With the Judiciary Night behind it, the Women’s Bar Association is planning a Black History Month celebration on Feb. 18.
