The Board of Trustees of the Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection of the State of New York have recognized Harry Williams for his generous act of public service in assisting claimants in receiving awards of reimbursement in 2013. Harry was the only attorney in Onondaga County to receive this recognition from the Lawyers’ Fund. Harry is a member at Bousquet Holstein and focuses his practice on Litigation, Estates and Trusts Planning and Administration, and Real Estate. Harry has represented corporate, bank and individual clients for over 40 years.
The New York State Legislature gives the Lawyers’ Fund a broad mission: to protect legal consumers from dishonest conduct in the practice of law, to preserve the integrity of the bar, to safeguard the good name of lawyers for their honesty in handling client money, and to promote public confidence in the administration of justice in the Empire State. The Trustees of the Lawyers’ Fund attempt to secure these goals by reimbursing client money that is misused in the practice of law and in other efforts as well.
