The award presentation will be held at The Park Chateau in East Brunswick during the MCBA’s 109th Annual Installation of Officers & Trustees Dinner on May 10, 2023.

This year, the award is presented to Mr. Paone who carries on David’s commitment to service and represents the best of the Middlesex County Bar Association.
