I am running for Nassau County District Court Judge for the Second District of Nassau County. I am a former Nassau County Assistant District Attorney, and currently a criminal defense attorney in private practice. My practice is based in large part in Nassau County District Court, which is the office I am seeking. I appear in that court at least once a week, and many times, several times a week. Additionally, my prior experience as Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Nassau Community College and my current position as Mayor of South Floral Park, has given me the necessary experience in making the difficult decisions I will need to make as a sitting judge. I am also a 40 plus year resident of Nassau County, and dearly love it here. I believe that i have earned a reputation for fairness, honesty, and integrity from judges, prosecutors, court personnel, and my defense attorney colleagues. My background makes me uniquely qualified to sit as a Nassau County District Court Judge.
