Citing Aristotle’s principles of persuasion “ethos, pathos and logos” Gino L. DiVito said of his law partner, Michael I Rothstein, that he has “the qualities of character, competence and conviction that are required of those who would lead.”

With that, DiVito, a retired appellate justice, administered the oath of office to Rothstein as the 41st president of the Appellate Lawyers Association.

In his remarks on June 13, Rothstein noted that 304 of the association’s 377 members have offices in Cook County. He pledged to expand outreach to downstate appellate lawyers through collegial and educational programs.
