  • I have been a judge for 10 years, currently serving in Buffalo City Court, the busiest court in the state outside of New York City. In 2004 alone I handled 4100 criminal and 2300 civil cases. I also served as a public defender for Monroe Co. and as a prosecutor for the City of Buffalo. I graduated with highest honors from the University at Buffalo. I will bring my reputation for being discerning, fair and hard working to the State Supreme Court bench. I live in Buffalo with my two daughters.
