Cramer & Anderson Partner James D. Hirschfield has been appointed to the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch’s Standing Committee on Recommendations for Admission to the Bar of Litchfield County.
“This committee acts under the authority of the Judicial Branch to regulate the practice of law in Connecticut,” said the June 29 letter informing Attorney Hirschfield of the appointment. “Your appointment to this committee, as a lawyer, reflects the fundamental belief that the legal profession should be largely self-governing. For this reason, members of the legal profession carry with them the distinctive responsibility to ensure that self-governing activities are conducted in furtherance of the public interest and to avoid the perception that activities are conducted in their self-interest.”
The appointment, made by the Judges of the Superior Court in their annual meeting June 24, commenced July 1 and continues for a term of three years.
The letter of announcement noted that Attorney Hirschfield’s exemplary record of conduct in conformance with the law and his respect for the legal system were key considerations in his selection.
Attorney Hirschfield works in Cramer & Anderson’s Litchfield office, and his areas of practice include Civil Litigation, Business, Corporate & Commercial Law, and Divorce & Family Law, along with Criminal Law. He may be reached at 860-567-8718. His email is email@example.com.
