MIDDLETOWN — Kori Termine Wisneski, deputy general counsel for the city of Middletown, has received the 2021 Brad D. Bailey Award from the International Municipal Lawyers Association.
Each year, the Bailey Award recognizes an assistant local government attorney who has provided outstanding service to the public, and who possesses an exemplary reputation in the legal community, the highest of ethical standards, and who revels in maintaining a life that balances a passion for professional excellence and the joy of family and friends, according to a press release.
“I am incredibly proud — but not surprised — that Kori’s outstanding work is being recognized with this award. She is among the best and brightest attorneys, not just in the state, but in the country,” Mayor Ben Florsheim said in a press release Monday. The city of Middletown is lucky to have her.”
Wisneski has been deputy general counsel since December 2012, and has received previous recognition. She won the 2013 Volunteer of the Year Award from the Connecticut Alliance of the YMCA, the 2014 New Leaders in the Law Award, and the Star of the Year Award from the Connecticut Bar Association Young Lawyers Section. She has also been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers, the news release said.
“Serving the city I love is reward enough, but I am honored to be recognized in this way and to work side by side with others who care deeply for our community and its success,” Wisneski said in a prepared statement.
She is a summa cum laude graduate of Quinnipiac University School of Law, where she was publication editor of the Law Review, the news release said. Wisneski received her bachelor of arts from the College of the Holy Cross in economics. She is a Middletown native and lives in the city with her husband, Eamonn, and two children, Jack and Zoë.
