Interview of the Month
An Interview with
Hon. Anne E. Minihan, A.J.C.C.
Interviewed by Susan L. Pollet
Q: Please tell us about your legal career, and what led you on the path to the judiciary?
A: From 1992 until 1999, I was an Assistant District Attorney in Westchester County. In 2006, when my children were in school full time, I returned to work part time and became, as part of a job share, the Principal Court Attorney to the Hon. Robert A. Spolzino, J.S.C., when he was an Associate Justice of the Appellate Division, Second Department. After that, I worked (again, part time) for the Westchester County Law Department until 2010 when I took a full time position with the Hon. J. Emmett Murphy, J.S.C. as his Principal Court Attorney. I was the Acting Village Justice for the Village of Croton-on-Hudson Justice Court until I was elected in 2014.
We all know that Thanksgiving is a day that reminds us to count our blessings. I’ve often thought, though, that our true mission is to recognize that “it’s all good.” Creating a private resume of enumerated achievements, successes, and special people may remind us that we are fortunate, but being thankful for everything is the foundation of happiness.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
