Alumnus Solomon one of ‘Forty Under 40’

Patrick Solomon '92, a founding partner with Dolin, Thomas and Solomon law firm of Rochester, was profiled as one of “Forty Under 40” in a recent edition of the “Rochester Business Journal.”

The list was reprinted earlier this month in the magazine's 2006 edition of “The Lists.”

Solomon was honored for representing “individuals in negotiations with employers and in federal and state court in the areas of employment discrimination, collective and class actions for unpaid wages, wrongful denial of benefits, breach of employment contract and the handling of administrative proceedings.”

After graduating from HWS, he earned a law degree from Cornell University and was an associate of the law firm Nixon Peabody.

He is also a member of the St. Regis Mohawk Nation, and an associate judge for its tribal court. Solomon is a member of the board of Compeer International, a volunteer attorney with Volunteer Legal Services Project, and a member of the Monroe County Bar Association and its judiciary committee and the American Bar Association's fair labor standards legislative committee.

He spoke at the April 2005 Benjamin Hale dinner, which recognizes Hobart students for outstanding academic achievement.

While at HWS, Solomon majored in American studies and was a four-year varsity goalie for the 12-time Division III championship lacrosse team. He participated in the 1990 World Lacrosse games in Australia as a member of the Iroquois Nationals team.
