The Huntington Lawyer’s Club (HLC) was founded in 1934 and is comprised of Attorneys and Judges living and/or working in the Township of Huntington. The purpose of HLC is to bring together a community of Lawyer’s to further socialization, legal education and networking. We meet monthly (except for August); usually on the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month. Each meeting is a dinner event at various venues in and around the Huntington Village area (sometimes in Northport and sometimes in Cold Spring Harbor). The event consists of a cocktail hour and then a dinner. A guest speaker is invited to address our guests in an informative and entertaining manner. The guest speaker is usually a Judge or someone ancillary and complimentary to the legal field.
We are organized with Officers and a Board of Trustees and governed by By-Laws that are regularly reviewed and revised.
We are a nonprofit organization and invite sponsors to contribute to each event. A sponsor contributes a minimum of $500. This entitles the sponsor to attend the event, along with one other person from their business. Sponsors will have between 5-10 minutes to address the Club (except for our annual Installation and Judiciary night). Sponsors are credited on the invitations and emails that go out announcing the event and are encouraged to distribute any marketing materials (cards, brochures, etc.) to our guests and members. We have many regular sponsors who come back again and again to sponsor our events. We are so very grateful for the sponsorships as it allows us to subsidize some of the cost for each event as well as honor our local Judiciary on Judiciary night (in June of each year) by inviting members of our local Judiciary to attend that event as our guest and at no fee.
The membership is comprised of Attorneys of all different specialties. We have Solo Practitioners, Associates and Partners from small firms and from large firms, as well as in-house counsel. Specialties include members of the local Judiciary, Attorneys specializing in Criminal Defense, Real Estate, Matrimonial, Civil Litigation, Estate Planning, Elder Law, Corporate matters, Bankruptcy. HLC truly has a broad membership.
We encourage guests to attend our events to get to know the organization and perhaps pursue membership or sponsorship. Guests can be non-lawyers but must be invited by an active member. HLC thrives because of the active involvement of the Officers, Board of Trustees, Members and Sponsors.
We pride ourselves on achieving a proud organization that is widely enjoyed by all who have been involved. We are an organization with a proud history bringing Attorneys and Judges together for over 80 years. Our organization, with its proud heritage, has consistently proven to be an invaluable asset to practitioners of all areas of law in Huntington and in Suffolk County.
