Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Honorable Susan Capeci

by Susan L. Pollet
Chair of the Archive
and Historian Committee

Q:  Tell us about your career, and why you wanted to become a Judge.

A:  I was a private practitioner for twenty five years prior to becoming a Judge. While I had a general practice, the majority of cases that I handled were criminal defense cases. After all that time, I felt I needed a change but not something so different from my professional experience. When there was a vacancy created by Judge Nicolai leaving the bench, I applied to Governor Paterson’s office for an appointment. I am very grateful to Governor Paterson for appointing me in April of 2008. I ran for election to keep that seat that November and won. I was first placed in the Family Court, then the SCI arraignment part, and now I preside over the Westchester County DV/IDV part as well as the Felony Drug Court, known as Diversion. I have been in the DV/IDV and Diversion Courts since 2010.

President's Message

by Susan Edwards Colson, Esq.

I cannot believe how quickly 2016 is flying by! This month brings one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving.  Besides digging out old family recipes (yes, I still have the recipe cards written in my grandmother’s and mother’s handwriting) I’ll try to set some time aside to pause and set a calm, reflective tone as the days get shorter. I am grateful each year for Thanksgiving itself, a holiday that unifies all Americans because it is not designated to celebrate any individual or group. Instead, it allows each of us individually to take time to reflect on all that is good in our lives.  Perhaps this year thanksgiving, the verb as well as the noun, is more necessary than ever because of the turbulent election season.
