Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I have had the honor to represent the people of the Town of Smithtown and Suffolk County in a number of elected and appointed positions over the last 20 years and I am now seeking to serve in the judicial branch of local government as a District Court Judge. I have been involved in the governmental decision making process as a municipal attorney for a number of municipalities and have served as a Suffolk County Legislator. As an attorney for more than 25 year years, I have served as legal counsel for a major corporation in Manhattan, represented the Town of Smithtown, the County of Suffolk and the City of Long Beach and spent over a decade in private preactice from the early 1990s to 2004. I have been found qualified to serve as a member of the judiciary by the Suffolk County Bar Association. I believe that I can utilize my experience not just to sit on the bench but to help develop ways to improve how our court system functions.
