Certilman Balin's LIKE (Lawyers Involved in Kids' Education) Program
Ten years ago, two of our partners, Brian Ziegler and Fred Skolnik, attorneys in the Corporate/Securities Group at the Long Island law firm of Certilman Balin Adler & Hyman, LLP, through their involvement with the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island, co-founded the LIKE (Lawyers Involved in Kids' Education) program. They gathered our partners, associates and staff members who wanted to make a difference in the lives of elementary school children. The selected school is Walnut Street Elementary School which is located in Uniondale, near our East Meadow office. Every Wednesday during the school year, 15 of our people spend their lunch hour with 4th and 5th graders who are deemed to be at-risk students. It's been a rewarding experience for the mentors and the mentees.
