Quinnipiac University School of Law graduate Steen Kadison, who joined Cramer & Anderson as an Associate in the summer, was sworn into the Connecticut Bar Nov. 1 in a ceremony conducted before the justices of the Connecticut Supreme Court.
“Being sworn in to the Connecticut Bar is both an honor and a privilege for me as I begin my legal career with the dedicated attorneys and staff at Cramer & Anderson,” Attorney Kadison said. “Chief Justice [Richard] Robinson’s message about the importance of pro bono work especially resonated with me, as giving back as a member of the legal community is something I am passionate about.”
“Congratulations to Steen for being sworn in to the Connecticut Bar. He’s a dynamic young attorney with a bright future and we are fortunate to have him on the Cramer & Anderson team. He came to the firm from Quinnipiac University School of Law already possessing an impressive amount of experience through his scholarship and key internships,” said Partner Dan Casagrande, who is Attorney Kadison’s mentor in the firm.
Attorney Kadison was joined by more than 100 new attorneys sworn in to the Connecticut Bar Nov. 1, according to a Connecticut Bar Association news post, which said Chief Justice Robinson’s welcome remarks “stressed the importance of pro bono work” as he “reflected on its impact throughout his own career.”
Attorney Kadison, who embraces volunteerism and community service, served as a legal intern at the Quinnipiac School of Law’s legal clinic, handling cases and issues that ranged from housing to child support and asylum. He drafted documents in support of asylum applications and accompanied asylum clients to hearings.
With a church group in 2008, Attorney Kadison participated in a post-Hurricane Katrina relief effort in New Orleans, helping demolish condemned homes in the Ninth Ward and working to repair and paint damaged homes, while also assisting with construction and landscaping for new homes.
Following the presentation of the candidates at the swearing-in ceremony Nov. 1, Connecticut Bar Association President Ndidi N. Moses welcomed the new attorneys.
“What I do know is that to be successful in this world as a professional, you need a network. For me, the Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) was that network that kept me sane and connected as a law student, young lawyer, and now, even as a not so young lawyer,” she said, according to the CBA news post. “The friends I have made in the CBA over the years have taught me so much about how to live and not simply exist. They have been my lifeline, my soldiers, and champions. They are responsible for my success in my legal career but, more importantly, they have helped me achieve the balance I need to be healthy enough to do all the things I want to do.”
The attorneys who were sworn in and family members were invited to attend a reception at the State Capitol after the ceremony hosted by the Connecticut Bar Association Young Lawyers Section, the news post said.
