I am honored to be running for Judge of the Nassau County Family. I have served as a Principal Law Clerk in the Nassau County Supreme Court for the past 8 1/2 years, of which 7 1/2 have been in the Matrimonial Center, where I have had the opportunity to extensively assist parties and counsel in coming to final and temporary resolutions of family and matrimonial law issues with creative, fair, and practical solutions and settlements. I have drafted decisions after trial on issues related to matrimonial actions, including custody, and spousal and child support, as well as over 1,500 decisions on motions for temporary support and custody, contempt, as well as plenary relief. I graduated from the Waldorf School of Garden City in 1997; received a Bachelor of Arts from Wellesley College, magna cum laude, in 2000; and earned my Juris Doctorate from Columbia Law School in 2004. I have the experience, temperament, integrity, and heart to ensure that litigants receive swift and fair justice.
City/Town of Residence Bayville,NY
Prior Civic Service Presently a Village trustee, Was an Assistant District Attorney for over 25 years, Was a Principal Law Clerk to Judge Abbey Boklan for 5 years.
As an admitted attorney for over forty years, with a very wide range of legal experience in both the public and private sectors, I know I will bring a great deal of real world knowledge and practical experience to the role of a Judge of the Nassau County Family Court. In fact I think the only position I have not held in the judicial system is that of a judge. I was a prosecutor, law clerk, defense attorney, administrator of assigned attorneys,even a police officer, for a short period. I believe I know what the rule of law,fairness, and compassion are, and how important all three are in the administration of justice in the emotion packed arena of the family court. It is a job I can do, and will do, without fear or favor, if elected.
