Yonkers law firm marks new year with grand re-opening

YONKERS (December 6) - James G. Dibbini & Associates, P.C. is ringing in the New Year with a grand re-opening of its offices at 570 Yonkers Avenue. The re-opening will showcase the firm’s expanded and renovated office space, while offering members of the community the opportunity to meet with the firm’s staff and enjoy refreshments.

After 18 years, the law practice has expanded from a small, solo operation to a firm with eight attorneys and four legal assistants, all the while serving Yonkers, Westchester County and the greater New York area. The Grand Re-Opening is open to the public, and seeks to highlight the firm’s growth and success over recent years. The firm’s offices have been newly renovated and expanded to accommodate the expanding practice.

“We are very proud to serve the citizens of Westchester and New York City as we invest and support the continued development of our community,” said James Dibbini, the firm’s principal. “I am very fortunate to have an amazing team, and without them, we would not be able to grow and provide the exceptional legal services we strive to provide every day.”

The firm was recently awarded the Yonkers Chamber of Commerce’s Business Growth Award and was inducted into its Business Hall of Fame. The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce’s Business Hall of Fame recognizes businesses that have successfully contributed to economic development and community enrichment of Yonkers.

The grand re-opening at 570 Yonkers Avenue, Yonkers, will begin at 11:00 A.M. on December 12, 2016. Breakfast will be provided.

Mid-Hudson Small Business Development Center one of the top performers in state

KINGSTON (November 2) - The New York Small Business Development Center (SBDC) received a successful accreditation report with four commendations, including recognition of their relief efforts with Super Storm Sandy by refining the State program to properly address the market disruptions for many affected businesses and assignments in the recovery effort. This is the first time that four commendations were provided as part of this process.  All 24 regional centers of the NY SBDC were individually reviewed along with the NY SBDC Central Office in Albany.  The Mid-Hudson SBDC was one of the top performing centers in the state, having the highest number of businesses served.

The Accreditation was conducted and provided by the Association of Small Business Development Centers which is the national body mandated by the US Congress to evaluate state SBDC programs. The SBDC Accreditation process is based on continuous improvement and the National Baldridge Standards of excellence in service. This helps ensure that every SBDC program is continually undergoing self-analysis and growth in a dynamic improvement effort to fully meet the needs of America's small business and entrepreneurial sectors.

The Mid-Hudson Small Business Development Center is supported by SUNY Ulster and serves seven counties in the Hudson Valley (Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Schoharie, Sullivan, and Ulster) and the state and national SBDC networks. The SBDC specializes in one-to-one professional business counseling and technical assistance to new or existing small businesses. SBDC counselors assist with business plan development, financial and market analysis, locating funding sources, strategic planning issues, and other business services. Counselors also conduct patent searches for entrepreneurs and assist with locating product, market, and trend resources.
