ABOUT THE MILGRAUM FAMILY AND STANLEY MILGRAUM

This grant is in memory of Stanley Milgraum, a NYC police officer that attained the level of Sergeant. When he was assigned to work in the Legal Division of the NYPD, he realized that he was capable of doing more. He attended Fordham Law School as an evening student and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree. Retiring shortly thereafter, he decided he was too old to start at the bottom and opened a general practice firm on Wall Street, handling court assigned criminal cases and pro bono cases amongst other things. This grant is established on the 25th anniversary of his passing. 

The Milgraum Family is a true P.A.D. family: Glenn P. Milgraum (Touro Chapter), attained the position of International Associate Tribune (2008-2012); William F. Rothman (Brooklyn-Queens Alumni Chapter), attained the position of District Justice (Dist. XXI); and Robyn L. Rothman (Touro Chapter) is a recent graduate and active member.
