COHEN AND LOMBARDO is the corporate sponsor for the Buffalo Presidential Center’s Presidential Heritage film clip being show before each movie at the North Park Theatre on Hertel Avenue. Come on out to see it!

COHEN AND LOMBARDO employees engaged in three service projects this quarter:

  • Seventeen of our attorneys, staff and their families participate in the Hospice 5K Walk on May 17, 2015. It was a fun filled event with lots of sunshine, beginning at Canalside and winding through downtown Buffalo.
  • Thirteen of our attorneys and staff enthusiastically took part in Lawyers for Learning Bowling Event, sponsored by the Bar Association of Erie County to raise funds for the Lawyers for Learning Program. We sent two teams with amazing bowling skills to assist in this program. One of our teams was absolutely fantastic! We won’t talk about the other one whose bowling skills where truly unbelievable!
  • A “Dress Down” Day was held in mid-May in which each person was allowed to wear jeans if they contributed to the firm’s Charitable Fund. It was a rousing success!

ERIN E. MOLISANI and her husband, Seth, are supporting the resurgence of the Elmwood Village district, by purchasing the first home as newlyweds around the corner from our office. She can now walk to the office for her daily workout.
