Practice/Organization Description

Tara C.

In this capacity, she has defended numerous lead paint and other toxic tort claims. She also has experience defending legal malpractice, intellectual property and business tort claims.

Currently, as a recent expansion of HRRV's practice, she is heading the new office in White Plains, New York, thus further spreading HRRV's legal influence throughout Westchester County.

She is also the author of a regular column in the Westchester Women’s Bar Association Newsletter entitled “Parenting for Professionals,” dealing with the complex issues that face working attorneys raising families. She is slated to be a Guest Speaker on the Mommytrackd.com Web Site addressing these same issues.

She has served as a judge for the Pace University School of Law National Environmental Moot Court Competition for several years and, recently, for the American Bar Association Negotiation Competition, Regional Round and the New York State Bar Association High School Mock Trial Tournament this spring. She also is Co-Chair of the Lawyer Referral Service for the Westchester County Bar Association.
