Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • As a member of the bar for the last 25 years, I was pleased to be rated "qualified"by my peers at the Suffolk County Bar Association in my judicial screening. After my admission to the Bar, I became a licensed instructor of Real Estate Sales and Brokers Courses and began working in a general practice firm where I concentrated in both civil and criminal litigation including appellate work. Prior to opening my own practice, I was an Adjunct Professor of Paralegal Studies at New York Institute of Technology while also practicing in most of the courts in the State system. In 1996 I founded the firm of Barbera & McElhone PC in Miller Place where my concentration has been Matrimonial and Family Law. I have been a resident of Smithtown for 24 years and have raised my four children with my husband while being actively involved in many community organizations including: Smithtown Historical Society,Smithtown Women's Republican Committee,Kings Park Father John Papallo Lodge of the Sons of Italy,and Women on the Move LI, to name a few. I was named "Boss of the Year by the Society of Legal Professionals in 1998; and authored the book "Braving the Divorce Maze and Winning": in 2008.
