Guest Member Spotlight:
Patricia Isaacson, Seeger Weiss

How long have you been an ALA member with the NYC Chapter?

I have most recently been a member for 6 years having had a sabbatical while raising my 3 kids.  I originally was a member starting in 1991.

Tell us about your role at Seeger Weiss ~ what do you like most about it?

I am the Firm Administrator at Seeger Weiss.  We are a small, class action law firm representing only plaintiffs predominately in pharmaceutical and medical device recalls. We have offices in NYC where our headquarters are located as well as offices in Philadelphia and Newark, NJ.   I manage all aspects of the firm except financial reporting which our CFO handles thankfully.  I love everything I do!

The Spring is a great time to visit New York City... what would you recommend that visitors from Philadelphia do or see in particular during this season?

The 911 museum is finally opening.  Honestly it’s a tough site for New Yorkers to visit but certainly one that should not be missed. 

As the immediate Past-President of the New York City Chapter, Patricia is excited to share lots of exciting news and great things that NYC has done this year.
