PM Mottley congratulates Justice Hinds-Radix on appointment

March 25th, 2022

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has joined jurists, family members, friends and supporters in paying glowing tributes to former jurist Barbados-born Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix, now serving as New York City’s new Corporation Counsel.

In an historic vote late last month, the New York City Council voted unanimously to confirm Hinds-Radix as the first Caribbean-born woman to serve as Corporation Counsel in New York City’s history.

In her new post, Hinds-Radix is leading the City’s Law Department, which is primarily responsible for providing legal representation to the City, the Mayor, other elected officials, and City agencies in all affirmative and defensive civil litigation.

In an hour-and-a-half virtual reception, organized by the Brooklyn, New York-based Caribbean American Lawyers Association, of which Hinds-Radix was co-founder, Mottley said she was honored to join in the celebration of a true daughter of the Barbadian soil.
