In an effort to recognize the outstanding contributions of the next generation of attorneys, WNY WBASNY created the Carol A. Condon Outstanding New Lawyer Award, which is awarded annually. This award is given to a WBASNY member who, as of December 31st of the current membership year, has been a member of the bar for not more than five (5) years, and who has made outstanding achievements within the profession, outstanding contributions within the WNY WBASNY community, or both.


This award is named in honor of WNY WBASNY’s 1995-1996 President, Carol A. Condon. Following nearly a decade of service to WBASNY at the state and local levels in the roles of both an officer and director, Carol A. Condon encouraged– and continues to encourage – new lawyers to become active contributors to their profession and community and showed them how to do so. WNY WBASNY is proud to commemorate Carol A. Condon’s encouragement and mentorship of the next generation of lawyers with the “Outstanding New Lawyer Award” in her honor.
