The Attorney of Nassau County
, chairperson of the Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice department of the law firm of Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein, P.C., as well as the founder of the firm’s Special Education law practice, has been named the 2003 recipient of the Robert W. Pearsall Corinthian Trophy. She is one of only two women who have earned this distinction during the past 33 years. The award is presented by the Sea Cliff Yacht Club to an individual member for “Corinthianism” in yachting, an attribute which represents participation for sport as distinct from gain, and which also involves the acquisition of nautical experience through the love of sport rather than through necessity or the hope of gain. The award was initiated in 1970 in honor of the late “Robby” Pearsall, an active club member, competitive sailor and yachtsman.
