Dear Members:

It was brought to my attention that Philip Mattina, Esq., a member of the RCBA, had a massive heart attack last week.  He is in Staten Island University Hospital North and had emergency open heart surgery.  

In case any of you have cases with him just notify the court to get the case adjourned and explain the situation.  I will keep all of you informed should there be any more news.

Please let's all pray for him to make a speedy recovery!
