Former Resident Receives Prestigious Award
Houston attorney and former Rockaway resident Scott Rothenberg was honored this month by the State Bar of Texas for his exceptional contributions in 2011 to the Bar’s continuing legal education efforts. Rothenberg was one of six volunteer lawyers receiving an award from the staff of TexasBarCLE, the Bar’s division for providing continuing legal education and one of the premier providers in the nation. The award, an attractive cobalt blue obelisk, is inscribed with “A Standing Ovation – Staff Appreciation for an Outstanding Volunteer of 2011.” It also bears Rothenberg’s name, the logo for TexasBarCLE, and the seal of the State Bar of Texas.
Rothenberg lived in the Rockaways from 1961 to 1978, and graduated from Beach Channel High School in 1978 and State University of New York at Albany in 1982. He continued on to the University of Houston College of Law.
