The Leaders in Law Award is presented to attorneys who have shown tremendous dedication to the legal profession and selfless, tireless commitment to the community.
"We are so proud to recognize these 15 Attorneys of the Year. They protect, create change and make a difference in the lives of so many, every single day," said The Daily Record publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner.
A special publication highlighting the Attorneys of the Year was published by The Daily Record today, in which John's accomplishments were written about.
A leading attorney in the area of personal injury litigation, John A. Falk's legal practice focuses primarily on medical malpractice, product liability, negligence matters, motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death matters. Over the course of his career he has helped numerous clients with severe injuries and their families obtain substantial recoveries. Falk joined the team at Faraci Lange in 1997, where colleagues describe him as the firm's top personal injury attorney. Prior to joining the firm, he was a Monroe County assistant district attorney for nearly seven years, prosecuting violent felony offenses. Falk was recently appointed by New York State Court of Appeals Chief Judge Janet DiFiore to serve on the state's Commission on Judicial Conduct. Outside of the office, Falk serves as a town court justice in Brighton. He also sits on several boards including the Town of BrightonPlanning Board, the Parks and Recreation Citizens' Advisory Committee and the Western New York chapter of the American Liver Foundation, and coaches multiple youth sports teams."
Faraci Lange was one of the sponsors at the Attorneys of the Year Awards reception that was held last night, where John's colleagues were present to support his recognition.
