Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins combined their holiday party with their Founding Partner, Arthur Aidala’s 50th Birthday Party at PH-D Rooftop Lounge at the Dream Downtown on November 28th, 2017. Friends including Mayor Bill de Blasio, Rosanna Scotto, Alan Dershowitz, Kings County District Attorney Eric Gonzalez and his wife Dagmar, Daman and Sant Singh Chatwal, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, NYS Comptroller Tom DiNapoli and Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle, Shepard Smith and Juan Williams, helped toast the leading New York City lawyer’s milestone birthday.
Midway through the event, Mayor de Blasio toasted his friend of 25 years saying, “You were 25 when we met, and I think you’re still 25-years old in the best sense. Everyone here knows that Arthur is a good human and a loyal friend and someone who speaks the truth. I may not be personally associated with the FOX network, but what I always saw, [was that] it didn’t matter what network he was on, Arthur always spoke openly. If you know him, you know he’s the real thing. I wanted to be here to discuss my friendship and appreciation. And of course, in Italian culture, we honor family above all else, [and] if you spend any time with Arthur, it’s all about family from the newest generation, to his ancestors, it means so much to him.”
Arthur then took a moment to thank his business partners including Millbrook Realty Group LLC, and the concierge car buying service, Platinum Motors NJ that he is working on alongside Michael Esposito and attorney Joseph Baratta. He then thanked his partners and mentors in law before thanking his father, Louis Aidala, and toasting him as his biggest mentor. He then announced that his former supervisor in the DA’s office John Esposito would join Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins as their fourth partner, and welcomed him to the team.
The nationally recognized legal expert was then presented with a cake and limited addition Montblanc pen from his partners and employees including his wife and partner Marianne Bertuna, Retired Judge Barry Kamins, Imran Ansari, Michael Jaccarino, Jennifer Cassandra, Paul D’Emilia, Dominick Gullo, before the cake was cut and dancing resumed.
