In the Wake of Sheldon Silver’s Conviction,
Legal Reform is Ethics Reform
“After years under the corrupt leadership of Sheldon Silver, it is a new era in Albany. Any real reforms must include meaningful steps to cleanse New York State of the trial lawyer agenda which former Speaker Silver protected and personally profited from for decades.
New York state elected leaders from both parties must address the problem of using their positions for personal gain. In the wake of this guilty verdict, legal reform is ethics reform. Our five-point plan can restore New York’s legal system to serve all New Yorkers, not trial lawyer special interests.”
-Tom Stebbins, Executive Director, Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York
