Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I am currently a Judge and have served in the New York City Criminal Court since 2003. Before that I worked in the New York City and State Comptroller’s Office and was a Principal Law Secretary in the Supreme Court. I began my career in the Queens County District Attorney’s office where I was ultimately promoted to a Supreme Court Trial Bureau Supervisor. I have more than twenty years experience in practicing law, specifically in the area of trial practice. Both the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and Queens County Bar Associations have found me to be “qualified” to be a Supreme Court Justice. I am a lifelong resident of Queens and have served in many organizations, including the Queens County Bar Association and the Brandeis Jewish Bar Association.
