Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey LLP is pleased to announce that partner Marianne Barbino Dubuque will be presented the “Waterbury Young Lawyers Award” at the Waterbury Bar Association’s Law Day celebration on May 5. The award honors a local attorney who has demonstrated a willingness to serve his or her community and who perpetuates a positive image of the legal profession.

According to the Waterbury Bar Association, Marianne was nominated based not only on the number of charitable and civic organizations that she supports with her time and resources, but also on the countless times that she has gone out of her way to lend a helping hand, offer words of encouragement, mentor young professionals and lift up those in the community. Marianne takes the time to get to know people, hear their stories, understand their problems, and offer her support.

“I can think of no other individual who exemplifies the spirit of this award more than Marianne,” said fellow partner Ann H. Rubin. “With little fanfare and expecting nothing in return, Marianne gives her time, resources and heart to her community and those in it.”
