#7. Greg Brown
Queens County Bar Association
Gregory Brown is the president of the influential Queens County Bar Association, which since it’s inception in 1876 has helped attorneys make their way through the courts of Queens. It’s a referral-based industry like no other, and the Bar Association is how new attorneys meet others in the legal profession, one of the largest industries in Queens.
As new president, Brown is focused on getting young attorneys involved with the Bar Association. The monthly Queens County Bar Bulletin is read cover to cover by the industry. Seasoned lawyers, judges and court officials write and read the bulletin with passion.
Brown is transforming the bulletin into a publishing outlet for second and third-year law school students by pushing faculty at the nearly dozen law schools in the New York area to encourage students to write briefs for the bulletin. “It’s a great way for people to notice these smart students,” he says.
