"Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder is a shining example of what is right in Bridgeport," Mayor Finch said. "This is a firm whose office has been a fixture in our downtown for decades.

"We're thrilled and humbled by this honor. It's been a privilege to call Bridgeport home for all these years, to share the journey as our city reinvents itself," said Michael Koskoff, principal of Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder. ""But there is still much work to be done and vital programs that need support so that all of Bridgeport can benefit. We have always acted on the belief that we must give back to the local community, and we will continue to do so in future."
The announcement will be made at a special celebratory event on Tuesday, December 13 at 1:30 p.m. at the Mayor's office, 999 Broad Street, Bridgeport, CT.
In part, the proclamation reads: For inspired dedication in representing those in our society whose rights have been violated or those who have been injured through negligence.
