June 21, 2022:
On Tuesday, June 7, 2022, Rosalia Baiamonte, Partner of the matrimonial law firm Gassman Baiamonte Gruner, P.C., was installed as the 120th President of the Nassau County Bar Association (NCBA) by her mentor, business partner, and NCBA Past President and WE CARE Founder, Stephen Gassman. President Baiamonte was installed alongside the following NCBA Officers: Sanford Strenger, President-Elect; Daniel W. Russo, Vice President; James P. Joseph, Treasurer; and Hon. Maxine S. Broderick, Secretary.
Among the evenings speakers were Hon. Norman St. George, Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Courts Outside New York City, and Nassau County Administrative Judge Hon. Vito M. DeStefano, who were invited to install the new officers of the NCBA Board of Directors and Nassau Academy of Law.
Throughout her term, Baiamonte plans to build upon and strengthen key components of the NCBA, including an increase in fundraising efforts to benefit the NCBA Lawyer Assistance Program, and creating new diversity and inclusion initiatives, among them, an NCBA Scholarship and Pre-Law Society for college students who are interested in a career in law.
“The tapestry of our Association becomes richer because of diversity. Diversity encompasses not only gender, race, and sexual orientation, but also ethnic and national origin, religion, geographic location, work experience, economic background, age, and disability, said Baiamonte. As diversity increases, so does our strength and capability as a bar association. Through increased diversity, our organization can more effectively address societal and member needs through a collection of varied perspectives, experiences, knowledge and understanding.”
Baiamonte has extensive experience dealing with a full range of matrimonial issues and substantial appellate advocacy experience, having prosecuted, and defended dozens of notable appeals involving complex matrimonial and family law issues. Her practice also extends to Collaborative Interdisciplinary Divorce. She will serve a one-year term as President of the NCBA.
