Miranda starts term as president-elect of NYABA

David P. Miranda of Voorheesville, a partner with Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti, began his term as president-elect of the New York State Bar Association on June 1.  The association, with a membership of over 76,000 members, is the largest voluntary state bar organization in the nation.

Miranda will begin his one-year term as president in June 2015.  This is the first time in over a decade that a Capital Region attorney will serve in this position.

Miranda has served as president of the Albany County Bar Association, secretary of the New York State Bar Association, and in the House of Delegates for the ABA and NYSBA.

In 2009, Miranda was appointed to the Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission for the Third Judicial District of the State of New York.  In 2002, he was appointed by Judith Kaye, then Chief Judge of New York’s Court of Appeals, to the statewide Commission on Public Access to Court Records.

Since 2007, Miranda has been selected as a “Super Lawyer” in the area of intellectual property litigation by the publication, Super Lawyer Magazine.  He served as editor-in-chief and contributing author of The Internet Guide for New York Lawyers, in 1999 and 2005, published by NYSBA, and is the author of “Defamation in Cyberspace: Stratton Oakmont, Inc. v. Prodigy Services Co.,” published by the Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology, in 1996.

Miranda received his juris doctor degree from Albany Law School and his bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
