December 6, 2018 was declared David Worby Day in Westchester County, New York. Westchester is an affluent suburban county just north of New York City and home to almost one million people.
David Worby was recently honored as one of the two recipients at the annual Judge Learned Hand Award dinner. The Judge Learned Hand Award is the highest honor that AJC presents to a legal professional for excellence in the practice of law, community service and other contributions to the legal community.
Mr. Worby led the charge for the 10,000 sick 9/11 rescue and recovery workers. His firm, Worby Vecchio Edleman’s litigation efforts resulted in recovery of nearly $1 Billion dollars for those workers who were diagnosed with various types of 9/11 related cancers, severe and debilitating respiratory illnesses, and other significant 9/11 injuries due to their exposure to the toxins at Ground Zero, and contines to help 9/11 victims to this day.
As much as anyone, David Worby was a catalyst for the suits now settled, for which he deserves applause. — Daily News
