You don't get many opportunities to celebrate a "first". Rarer still are American "firsts", that are often relegated to dusty history books or ancient memories. That is why the firm was delighted to participate in the celebration of the trailblazing career of retired NY Supreme Court Justice Marquette Floyd. Justice Floyd was Suffolk County's first black judge, and a decade after his retirement, remains the county's sole black justice. The firm joined members of the bench, bar and community on Friday to celebrate the unveiling of Justice Floyd's official portrait. Firm partner Brian T. Egan, Esq. remarked, "As a young lawyer, Justice Floyd was an example to me of performing your duties as a lawyer with respect and decorum. He also inspired me that every problem has a solution, if the parties were willing to work hard together to find that solution." Egan & Golden salutes Justice Floyd on this momentous occasion.
