Education 1975, Stroudsburg Highschool- 1979, Lafayette College, BA- 1981, Southwestern University School of Law, Juris Doctor
Current Occupation District Attorney of Monroe County
Qualifications for Office I have been the District Attorney of Monroe County for 20 years. I previously was appointed an assistant district attorney for a total of 12 years.
As the current District Attorney nearing the end of my fifth term in office (a total of 20 years), I have learned to never be satisfied with the status quo. Public service requires diligent and continuous self examination and self improvement. I believe that this philosophy has resulted in the office of the District Attorney being held in high regard by the Monroe County law enforcement community and the citizens of our county that we have sworn to serve and protect.

Qualifications for Office Experienced trial attorney, lobbyist and activist with almost two decades in practice fighting for victim's rights. Degree in Criminology.
