Congratulations to Barry A. Kozyra, Esq. on receiving the 2018 Essex County Bar Association Professional Lawyer of the Year Award, which was presented to Barry by the Honorable Barry T. Albin, Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, and the Honorable John W. Bissell, retired Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, at the Commission's Professionalism Awards Luncheon on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at the Pines Manor in Edison, New Jersey. When asked what inspires him about this noble profession, Barry stated:
"I believe all lawyers are charged by oath of office with the responsibility to seek justice for all and to bring honor to the profession. For me, my word has always been my bond in dealing with everyone -- client, adversary, the courts and others. I have tried to fairly, and with due respect, be an advocate without losing sight of the truth and the reputation of the profession. Those goals have worked for me."
