Boxing Ring Barrister

Attorney says

“Boxing is

like litigation”

Garden City’s Roseanne “Ro-Hammad Ali” Beovich was taken aback the first time she took a hit when preparing to box for the 10th annual LI Fight for Charity that took place last month at the Hilton in Melville. After training at the Glen Cove Boxing Club three times a week, it became easier for her to put up her dukes and get into the ring to raise money for local charities on Long Island.  

An associate attorney at Genser Dubow Genser & Cona (GDGC), a leading elder law and estate planning firm in Melville, the 28-year-old attorney picked up where her colleagues Paul Hyl, Esq. and Ken Kern, Esq., also attorneys at GDGC who boxed in the Fight for Charity several years ago, left off.

“I wanted to prove to Paul and Ken that women can box too, and maybe do it better.”  As the petite pugilist gave it her all in the ring with her opponent, American Business’s Wendy Sincuir, the GDGC staff cheered her on.

Attended by a sell-out crowd of more than 1,200 people, the LI Fight for Charity raised nearly $300,000 for the Genesis School, LI Community Chest and the National Foundation for Human Potential. Roseanne’s team raised close to $7,000 alone. “The Fight for Charity is such a fun event that raises money for great local organizations that need help,” says Jennifer Cona, Esq., managing partner of GDGC. “We are proud to support this event and to put up our 3rd boxer—and our 1st female boxer. Roseanne showed us all that women can be just as tough—both inside and outside the courtroom.”

An avid runner of four to five miles a day, the diminutive attorney didn’t expect boxing to be this challenging and strenuous. “I never knew it took so much skill and stamina,” says Beovich. She was also surprised to learn that once professional boxers are out of the ring, they treat each other like friends. “You might see them hugging their opponents after the fight,” she explains. “It’s similar to the courtroom in that after you argue against your opposing attorney, you shake hands and acknowledge that you are both professionals and colleagues.”

Because GDGC is dedicated to its community and to helping low-income seniors, veterans and others in need, Beovich has participated in many of the firm’s charitable activities, such as the Midnight Run to help the homeless, raising money for the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center as well as donating her time to the LI Cares Nutrition Warehouse.  

The athletically-inclined lawyer concentrates her practice in estate litigation, estate administration, appellate advocacy, guardianships and litigation in all courts throughout Long Island and the metro New York area. As a litigator, she divides her time between the health care facility representation practice group and the estate litigation department. She earned her Juris Doctor Degree from Hofstra University and is a member of the New York State Bar Association Elder Law Committee and the Nassau County Bar.
