Sedita to join Mattina firm

One of the area's best known local jurists -- State Supreme Court Justice Frank A. Sedita Jr. -- will join another well-known former judge in a Williamsville firm when he retires from the bench Dec. 31.

Sedita said this week he will work for Counsel Financial Services, headed by former Erie County Surrogate Judge Joseph S. Mattina. The 11-year-old commercial finance company caters to plaintiffs' law firms.

Counsel lends money to personal injury and other lawyers, providing them the working capital to keep their business going, pay legal and other expenses, and pursue the cases for which their clients hired them.

Sedita, who turned 76 this year, is mandated to retire from Supreme Court after serving three two-year terms as a senior judge.
