Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I have been an attorney for 25 years. I spent the beginning of my career as a trial lawyer, and the last 18 as Principal Court Attorney to a judge. That I have enjoyed my work as a Principal Court Attorney for the past 18 years is an understatement. I have loved it. Now that the Supreme Court Justice for whom I have worked all these years has reached mandatory retirement age, it seems a natural progression for me to try to continue my work by seeking that position. It is my goal to be elected to the N.Y.S. Supreme Court bench this fall so that I may continue to serve the public in a manner that supports the true purpose of our democracy, and the tenets of the New York State and United States Constitutions based on justice and equality. It is, and has always been, important to me that people who come to our courts leave with the feeling that their views have been heard and understood, and with the sense that our justice system works.
