Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I have years of judicial experience as the twice-elected New Castle Town Justice. I have also presided in Westchester's busiest courts: Yonkers City Court, Mount Vernon City Court, White Plains City Court, and Peekskill City Court. In 2008, I also served for five months as the Acting Justice in Yorktown Town Court. I have presided over thousands of matters and have never been reversed. As an attorney, I began my career as an Assistant District Attorney. I then opened my own law firm, Zuckerman & Cruz, which has offices in Westchester and Bronx Counties. I have handled thousands of criminal cases, from minor offenses to homicides. I also served for 15 years as the New Castle Town Prosecutor. My community dedication includes seven years as a volunteer first responder. I am a NYS certified EMT and volunteer regularly with the Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps. I also have been the chair of the local Drug Abuse Prevention Council and coached the local high school mock trial team. Judicial experience, legal expertise and demonstrated community action make me uniquely qualified to be your judge in Westchester County Court.
