Craig M. Aronow Receives Service to the Bar Award

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Craig M. Aronow, an East Brunswick resident and partner with the New Brunswick law firm of Rebenack, Aronow & Mascolo LLP was presented with the Young Lawyers Division Service to the Bar Award at the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting and Convention in Atlantic City on May 21.

A 1998 Quinnipiac University School of Law graduate and NJSBA member since 2000, Mr. Aronow has been a Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Executive Committee member since 2002. As an Executive Committee member, Mr. Aronow organized several community outreach and social events for the YLD, including Earth Day and clothing collections for Hire Attire (a non-profit organization in New Brunswick that provides clothing for the indigent attempting to get back into the workforce). He facilitated sponsorships for several YLD events including the Annual Meeting in Atlantic City, and actively participated in the YLD’s new lecture series, 101 Series: How to take a Deposition, which was so popular that it was repeated two months later.

In addition to his work for the NJSBA YLD, Mr. Aronow is actively involved in the Middlesex County Bar Association (MCBA). He is the past president of that organization’s Young Lawyers Division and Chair of the Civil Practice Committee. Through the MCBA, Mr. Aronow began coaching the Rutgers University Mock Trial team, leading them to an 8th place finish in the Northeast Regional Competition in their second year of existence.

The Service to the Bar Award is presented to a young lawyer who has dedicated considerable time to bar activities at the county, state and /or national level, including specialty and minority bars.

The New Jersey State Bar Association, incorporated in 1899, is dedicated to the continuing education of lawyers and the public, to reforming and improving the legal system and to aiding in the administration of justice. Visit the Association’s website at www.njsba.com.
