City Bar E/D Opotowsky Praises Chief Judge Kaye (New York Law Journal)

“From my vantage point as the executive director of the New York City Bar Association for over a decade, I am struck by what an extraordinary supporter of lawyers and of their good works Judge Kaye has been. She is always available to bar associations and other legal groups to speak about the courts and access to justice, and to develop and participate in programs focusing on important areas of the law.

If there is an award to present for selfless work, Chief Judge Kaye is there to present it. If there is an important cause that is supported by lawyers, such as the Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert, she is there to support it. She is unmatched in her support of pro bono, having, for example, provided new opportunities for volunteer attorneys through the New York County Supreme Court’s pro se office.

Superlative jurist, brilliant manager, community leader: They all describe our chief inspirer, Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye.”
