Retired Judge Cirone Earns N.H. Bar Award



Lebanon — Retired Circuit Court Albert Cirone Jr. recently received the William A. Grimes Award for Judicial Professionalism from the New Hampshire Bar Association.

The annual award is given to a judicial member of the bar association who best reflects the highest standards of integrity, legal knowledge and ability, judicial temperament, diligence, and compassion.

The May 21 edition of NH Bar News said Cirone “is known for fairness from the bench” and for his commitment to the Lebanon and Upper Valley communities.

He was instrumental in establishing the “Halls of Hope” mental health court in Lebanon, the article said. Cirone retired in January after more than 25 years as the presiding judge of the 2nd Circuit Court in Lebanon. — Staff report
