Many people likely know me for my eleven years of service on the Rockland County Legislature, leading the body over the last three years as Chairman. I take great pride in my sense of community and service to our residents, and it’s been my honor to have taken a strong stand defending our shared values - protecting the environment, supporting educational opportunities, enhancing our quality of life and securing Rockland’s finances. Similarly, for many years I’ve worked with non-profits such as the Rockland Community College Foundation, Jewish Federation of Rockland County, Habitat for Humanity and Home Aides of Rockland to protect our most vulnerable citizens.
What you may not know about me is that for more than 20 years, I’ve also been an attorney in private practice focusing on the Surrogate’s Court - wills and trusts, probate and estate administration and guardianship. I’ve always been driven by a desire to help others in need and this area of practice has given me great satisfaction in my work. I’ve spent my whole professional career helping my clients pick up the pieces after the death of a loved one, make arrangements for the personal or financial needs of a disabled child or protect their rights under a will or a trust. Surrogate’s Court practice isn’t just my job - it’s my passion - and with your help I can continue to serve our community as Rockland County’s next Surrogate.
I recognize that it takes much more than passion in order to serve our community well on the bench. A judge presiding over a specialized court like the Surrogate’s Court needs to have a high level of knowledge, experience and expertise. That’s why I’m so honored that Virginia Athens - recently retired Chief Clerk with nearly five decades working in the Surrogate’s Court - has chosen to support me. No one can better speak to my qualifications than her, and her endorsement is posted below.
