Rosicki & Rosicki Associates in Garden City, New York, was presented with the New York State Rehabilitation Association’s (NYSRA) Business/Industry Award for the law firm’s commitment to employing people with disabilities. For over eight years, Tom Rosicki, Esq. has hired people with disabilities through The Rehabilitation Institute (TRI), located in Carle Place, and other vocational rehabilitation agencies. An impressive ten percent of the firm’s 200 employees are people with disabilities. The majority of these employees received vocational training at TRI.

“I’m honored to be the recipient of NYSRA’s Business/Industry Award,” said Tom Rosicki, Esq. “The real recognition goes to the people we hired who have been an inspiration to my firm by overcoming many hurdles from their disabilities to join the workforce. I believe everyone should be as good and they can be. With the help of vocational programs offered by TRI, people with disabilities have been able to achieve their career goals.”

Graduates from TRI training programs are working at Rosicki & Rosicki Associates in a variety of areas including, word processing, office management and switchboard. Some have been with the firm for eight years and have earned a series of promotions. One former TRI trainee moved to Oklahoma after working at Rosicki & Rosicki’s Carle Place office.
