On June 5, the Suffolk County Bar Association made history with its first-ever virtual installation, swearing in the Honorable Derrick J. Robinson as the 112th President of the SCBA.

Judge Robinson’s legal scholarship and skills will serve him well during the next year. A former New York State Assistant Attorney General and a founding president of the Amistad Long Island Black Bar of Long Island, he is looking forward to this new endeavor.

The Oath of Office was administered by his dear friend Supreme Court Justice William G. Ford. He plans to work this year in a cooperative spirit with his fellow officers and the members of the Board of Directors to focus on members and membership.

Along with Judge Robinson, new Officers and Directors were sworn in who will move SCBA forward during these critical times.

Daniel J. Tambasco: President Elect

Vincent J. Messina, Jr.: First Vice President

Cornell V. Bouse: Second Vice President

Patrick McCormick: Treasurer
