Michael Wildes '89 was officially sworn in on January 14 as the new Mayor of the City of Englewood.
Parvin K. Aminolroaya ’08 has been promoted to Partner at Seeger Weiss LLP. Ms. Aminolroaya has been an attorney at Seeger Weiss for a decade, working on class action and other major federal complex litigations.
Ms. Aminolroaya was a trial team member in the mass tort MDL against a pharmaceutical manufacturer of testosterone replacement therapies, resulting in bellwether verdicts totaling nearly $300 million. She was also involved in the “Dieselgate” emissions lawsuit against Volkswagen, which resulted in one of the largest corporate settlements in history. Currently, Ms. Aminolroaya is a member of the Seeger Weiss team appointed to the leadership of the national prescription opiates litigation against several drugmakers and distributors.
The firm’s success in these cases has earned Seeger Weiss recognition as Law360’s Practice Group of the Year in two categories, Class Actions and Product Liability. Ms. Aminolroaya has been consistently selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star since 2014.
Ms. Aminolroaya graduated from Cardozo School of Law in 2008. After working as a legal intern at the SEC and elsewhere, she was hired as an associate at Seeger Weiss, where her practice has focused on complex commercial litigation involving consumer protection, investment fraud, and antitrust and pharmaceutical injury. She is the fifth Cardozo alum of the firm’s current ten partners, joining founding partners Christopher Seeger and Stephen Weiss, both class of ’90, David Buchanan ’93 and Jeffrey Grand ’02.
An active Cardozo alumna, Ms. Aminolroaya is Co-Chair of the alumni group Cardozo Women, working to bring new programming designed to support women leadership in the legal profession. She is a member of Cardozo’s Alumni Association Executive Committee, the Dean’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion: Committee on Careers, and was recently honored by the BALLSA Alumni Group as a Cardozo Game Changer.
She was a recipient of the 2016 Alumni Association Young Leadership Award and the Jacob Burns Medal for outstanding contribution to Moot Court.
“Parvin and Seeger Weiss demonstrate the Cardozo commitment to paying it forward and using career success to reinvest in the Cardozo community,” said Inez Lano, Director of Alumni Affairs. “For me, and many others, Parvin is a true inspiration, and a wonderful mentor to young professionals—as well as her peers.”
Founding partner Stephen Weiss, who has served as a member of Cardozo’s Board of Overseers for the past 18 years, stated that “Parvin represents everything that is right about Cardozo. She came to us straight from law school already imbued with strong analytical capabilities and a commitment to securing justice for our clients. We’re enormously proud of Parvin, as well as our alma mater.”
Seeger Weiss LLP has been among the leading supporters of the Cardozo community for many years through scholarship and other means. The school named the room which houses the Cardozo Law Review in the firm’s honor.
