New York City Bar Association Names Roger Juan Maldonado President

“Roger Juan Maldonado, a partner at Smith, Gambrell & Russell has been nominated to be president of the New York City Bar Association. Maldonado represents musicians, publishers and record labels in litigation to enforce their copyrights and contractual rights. He is running unopposed to succeed John S. Kiernan as president. The election is scheduled for the organization’s annual meeting in May 2018. ‘I have not had enough time to think of what, if anything, I’d like to change. I do know from the work I have done with the bar that there’s a lot I want to keep the same,’ Maldonado said in an interview. He cited several issues that he wants to focus on as president, including immigration, the rebuilding of Puerto Rico and access to health care. Maldonado is chair of the Task Force on Puerto Rico at the bar and has served as a vice president and member of the Executive Committee and as chair of the Council on Judicial Administration, the Task Force on International Legal Services, the Task Force on Housing Court and the Housing Court Committee. He is a referee for the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and a member of the Commercial Division Advisory Council, the Advisory Group of New York State, the Federal Judicial Council and the board of directors of the New York Bar Foundation.”
