Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • As a father of four, I currently preside over arraignments, domestic violence and small claims matters. I am one of just two judges involved in the creation of a Mental Health Part (MHP) for the District Court in Nassau County. The MHP is designed to assist and guide defendants afflicted with neurological and other disabilities through the judicial system. As a trial attorney for 25 years, I represented thousands of clients throughout the metropolitan area in matrimonial and family matters including divorce, custody, visitation, abuse, neglect, Orders of Protection, and child support matters. Clients continually complained that they were unable to express their needs and frustrations directly to the Judge. I believe that listening to litigants during a fragile period of their lives is constructive and assists in the resolution of emotional family issues. While Family Court matters are serious in nature, I will bring my blend of humor, experience, and compassion to this bench. Litigants and attorneys will be treated with courtesy and respect. The even judicial temperament that I have brought to the bench will continue in Family Court.
