George Rice

It is with a heavy heart that the law school announces the passing of George Rice on October 15, 2020 in Port Jefferson on Long Island. Rice’s legal career centered on the nonprofit health care industry; he was a man dedicated to serving others, and a driving force behind the development of a South Setauket "continuing care" retirement community in the mid-1990’s.

Additionally, Rice, a former partner at the Garden City law firm Spellman Gibbons Polizzi Truncale & Trentacoste LLP, was involved in the representation of many not-for-profit sponsors who have planned, constructed, occupied and managed more than 1,000 units of subsidized and/or affordable housing.
