Recognized for his dedication to the practice of law, service to his profession, and his integrity and civility as a lawyer, Attorney William J. McCabe was awarded the President’s Award for Professionalism at the Annual Westmoreland Bar Association Membership meeting on April 1st, 2013.

The President’s Award for Professionalism is not an annual award, but is presented only when the dedication and achievements of a WBA member, who best exemplifies the highest standards of the profession with regard to the practice of law, should be acknowledged.

Attorney McCabe, a partner in the Greensburg law firm of DeBernardo, Antoniono, McCabe and Davis, is a graduate of St. Vincent and Duquesne University School of Law.

“Bill McCabe is most deserving of this award,” explains David S. DeRose, Outgoing President of the WBA. “The President’s Award symbolizes recognition by Attorney McCabe’s peers for his professionalism and skill as a lawyer. His involvement in leadership positions within our bar association is most impressive as is his involvement within the community.”

He has served his profession locally as Past President of the Westmoreland Bar Association, current Trustee of the Westmoreland Bar Foundation, President of the Ned. J. Nakles Inn of Court, and member of the Westmoreland Academy of Trial Lawyers. Attorney McCabe is currently a delegate with the Pennsylvania Bar Association House of Delegates and is Solicitor for the North Huntingdon Township Municipal Authority and the Derry Township Municipal Authority. Attorney McCabe concentrates his practice in criminal defense, personal injury and municipal law.
