It was a hot time at the PH-D Rooftop Lounge at the Dream Downtown, in that borough across the river as friends, family, associates and the hoi polloi of the legal field celebrated the 50th birthday party of Legal Eagle Arthur Aidala and the firm’s — Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins’ —holiday whoop-de-do.

Partner and wife Marianne Bertuna, the Ret. Judge Barry Kamins, members of the staff, including attorneys Jennifer Cassandra, Mark Cipolla, Paul D’Emilia, Dominick Gullo, Michael Jaccarino, and Imran Ansari, along with friends including Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Rosanna Scotto, Alan Dershowitz, Kings County District Attorney Eric Gonzalez and wife Dagmar, Daman and Sant Singh Chatwal, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli and Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle, Shepard Smith and Juan Williams, celebrated the half-century landmark birthday of the borough’s leading trial attorney with a fab cake.

The mayor lifted his glass and toasted his friend saying, “You were 25 when we met, and I think you’re still 25-years old in the best sense. Everyone here knows that Arthur is a good human and a loyal friend and someone who speaks the truth. If you know him, you know he’s the real thing.”

As well as being the leading trial attorney in the city, Arthur also served as president of Columbian Lawyers Association of New York City and was the 100th president of the Brooklyn Bar Association.
