Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • As a judge for 22 years, the last 13 on the Supreme Court, I have presided over countless trials. My colleagues elected me to serve as Chair of the Judicial Section of the N Y Bar Ass'n and President of the Nassau and N Y State District Court Judges Ass'ns. I am the author of a chapter in Commercial Litigation in NY State Courts and have lectured for the NY State and Nassau County Bar Ass'ns. I have prepared and presented programs to judges for the N Y Office of Court Administration. I have served on the committee that drafts Pattern Criminal Jury Instructions and committees that studied and implemented measures to make jury service less onerous and more rewarding. A life long resident of Valley Stream, I have been active in various community activities including Bridge, a Drug Treatment and Education Program, and the Elks. I am a member of Holy Name of Mary Parish. I hope to continue to conscientiously serve the people of Nassau and Suffolk Counties as a Supreme Court Justice.
