On Saturday, October 24th, Glen Head resident, Donnalynn Darling, Chair of Meyer Suozzi’s Personal Injury and Education Law practices, was honored at Mercy Haven’s 30th Anniversary Gala in the Bellport Country Club.
Ms. Darling has been privileged to work with Mercy Haven, an Islip Terrace-based charity, ensuring that children in Mercy Haven programs who are enrolled in local school districts receive their full educational rights and services under the law. Mercy Haven’s mission is to acknowledge the dignity and potential of people who are homeless, living with mental illness or living in poverty, and Ms. Darling has worked tirelessly to assist in bringing that statement to fruition.
Ms. Darling serves on the Executive Board of Variety Child Learning Center and is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, New York State Trial Lawyers Association, Theodore Roosevelt Inn of Court, and a founding member of the Committee of Attorneys and Accountants. She graduated from Stony Brook University as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and obtained her Juris Doctorate from Buffalo Law School.
