For Service to Nassau County Bar Association
(Mineola, NY) Nassau County Bar Association President Susan Katz Richman announced today that attorney Dorian R. Glover has been presented with the 2012 Director’s Award in recognition for his dedication and excellent work as chair of NCBA’s Judiciary Committee.
At the request of the Democratic and Republican parties, the NCBA screens candidates running for judicial offices in Nassau County through its Judiciary Committee. Each candidate’s qualifications and background are thoroughly examined, and personal interviews are conducted before the entire committee. Committee members have the option of rating each candidate as either “well qualified,” or “not approved at this time.” Only the most senior and well-respected attorneys are appointed to serve on this important committee. Under Glover’s leadership, this year the committee reviewed more than 40 candidates for judicial office.
Dorian R. Glover specializes in the practice of real estate, family/divorce, criminal, wills, trusts & estates and personal injury law from his offices at RXR Plaza in Uniondale. He received his JD degree from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center as well as earning the CALI Award for Academic Excellence in Racism in American Law. An active member of NCBA, Glover also serves as an elected director on the Board. Passionate about helping students at risk, Glover has been involved in NCBA’s student mentoring program since its inception, which today includes nearly 100 attorneys mentoring 3rd through 8th graders in 8 schools in Nassau. Glover coordinates the program for Barack Obama Elementary School in Hempstead. He also volunteers to judge high school student teams competing in the annual NYS Mock Trial Competition.
