It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of our colleague and friend Don Day.
Don, who was Of Counsel to the firm, practiced law for 66 years and was undisputedly one of the preeminent attorneys in New York during his long and storied career. Don joined the Saperston firm in 1948 following his graduation from law school at Cornell and following exemplary service to our nation in World War II. The firm, which later became known as Saperston & Day, was led by Don for many years during which Don served as managing partner. He joined Hiscock & Barclay in 2001 at the time the firms merged.

Awards & Recognition
Hiscock & Barclay attorneys recognized as Best Lawyers for 2015.
Twenty-four attorneys from Hiscock & Barclay have been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2015. In addition to being on the list, four attorneys have been recognized as "Lawyer of the Year." Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
