2012 Attorney Professionalism Award Recipient Chris McGrath

The Attorney Professionalism Award is the Top Honor awarded by the New York State Bar Association. To be nominated for this award, written entries are submitted by judges, clients and other lawyers. This year's recipient Chris McGrath, a Hewlett resident and past president of the Nassau Bar Association is an active member of many Five Towns organizations. We here at Inside Inwood have personally come to know and work with Chris and can attest to his integrity, and outstanding moral character. Congratulations to Chris on this well deserved honor!


Located at 501-2 Burnside Ave., Playhouse Funk, a lingerie shop selling erotic accessories has been issued a court summons by the Town of Hempstead. Owner, Loreal Watson feels the items she sells are no worse than items sold at Victoria's Secret or in Spencer's Gifts. After first being approached by a Town employee she did remove items from her store's front window. Due to appear in court on February 14th, Ms. Watson will defend her store believing the items she sells are appropriate as she now displays an :over 18 only" sign in her window. The court will decide if she should be fined.
