James A. Resila Honored for Pro Bono Service


The Federal Court Bar Association for the Northern District of New York recently honored bar members, including Carter Conboy’s James A. Resila, for his pro bono legal services to Northern District of New York litigants.

“Unfortunately, these difficult economic times have increased the number of litigants attempting to pursue a cause of action pro se. Without the public service of these dedicated professionals, the legal needs of the underprivileged may have gone unfulfilled. On behalf of the entire Northern District of New York bench, I want to thank the attorneys listed on the Northern District’s pro bono honor roll for their professionalism and dedication to providing legal services to the underprivileged” stated Hon. Gary L. Sharpe, Chief United States District Court Judge for the Northern District of New York.
