Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • After graduating from Loyola University in 1996 and St. John's Law School in 1999 I began my legal career as an A.D.A. in Nassau County. Working my way up from District Court to the County Court Trial Bureau I gained extensive litigation experience and knowledge of criminal law. In 2004 I left the D.A.'s Office and began working at an insurance defense firm in NYC, broadening my legal knowledge to include civil practice while appearing in all counties in NYC and Long Island. In 2005 I joined my father, Eugene McElroy, forming McElroy & McElroy in Mineola, NY. Our practice focuses on criminal matters, particularly representing indigent clients and families through the 18B panel. I have had experience in both the prosecution and defense of criminal matters as well as civil practice. I have spent almost my entire legal career practicing in Nassau County District Court, the court where I wish to become a Judge. I proudly won the Independence and Working Families primaries. On a personal note, I have four young children and I live in Garden City, NY with my husband Matt.
