RE: 2015 Robert N. McAllister Award
Dear Mr. Sandman:
As Chair of the Robert N. McAllister Award committee, I am pleased to advise you of your selection as the recipient of the 2015 Robert N. McAllister Award.
The Committee consists of Willis Flower, Michael Gill, James McClain, Pat Sampoli and myself, who unanimously agreed on your selection. I enclose for your review the criteria the Committee applied to the selection process. The award will be presented at an upcoming bar dinner with the specific date of the event to be set by the Atlantic County Bar President. Your name as recipient shall be placed upon the plaques which have been hung in the Civil Court House 'in Atlantic City and the Criminal Court House in Mays Landing.
The creation of the McAllister award would not have occurred but for two Roberts. The first of course is Robert N. McAllister, in whose memory contributors to the legal community are honored. The second Robert is you. It was your heartfelt musings in an "Ode to a Mensch" which resonated through the Bar and triggered the creation of the recognition award. You served as the first Chair of the committee and drafted the criteria upon which the honorees are selected. You, as Bob McAllister did before you, have left your mark on the Bar in multiple ways, of which institution of this award is only one.
On behalf of the Committee and the Atlantic County Bar, please accept my heartfelt congratulations for this well earned recognition. The entire Committee looks forward to joining other members of the Bar at the award dinner to extend our personal congratulations.
