NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, is proud to announce that the Honorable Jeremy S. Weinstein will be honored by The Brandeis Association for his many years of service to the Judiciary.

More than 300 lawyers and judges hailing from all five New York City boroughs, Westchester and Nassau counties are expected to attend this prestigious installation dinner to be held on Thursday evening, October 24th at Temple Beth Shalom in Roslyn Heights, New York.   The Honorable Jonathan Lippman, Former Chief Judge, New York State Court of Appeals, will be the keynote speaker.

Judge Weinstein's longstanding legal career in public service spans 14 years as a New York State Senator and 25 years in the judiciary, highlighted by several appointments that include Supreme Court Justice and Administrative Judge for Queens County, New York. During his time on the bench, he presided over the trial scheduling part (TSP) and conferenced more than 15,000 civil cases involving personal injury as well as medical malpractice, commercial and corporate contract matters.

In 1979, he was elected a member of the New York State Senate where he served on the Judiciary committee, the Codes Committee, the Banking Committee and the Crime and Corrections Committee. Among the many accomplishments he achieved during his tenure as a Senator included the sponsoring of 34 bills into law. Judge Weinstein maintained a successful private law practice for fifteen years until his election in 1993 as Judge of the Civil Court of New York. That began a celebrated judicial career that culminated in his appointment as Chief Administrative Judge for Civil Matters in the 11th Judicial District where he served with distinction for 10 years until his retirement in 2019.

Judge Weinstein is an avid supporter of ADR and is an extremely skilled mediator with the aptitude to handle all matter of case types, from the simplest to the most complex of legal issues. He is available to mediate cases throughout the New York Metropolitan area.

The Brandeis Association was established in 1969 as a Not for Profit Corporation. The purpose of the Bar association is to encourage friendship and culture among our members, to foster respect for law and legal institutions and to vigorously assert its interest in justice and fair play in the County of Queens and in the City and State of New York.
