Touro Law Center's Office of Institutional Advancement is proud to announce that Judge Anna Anzalone ’86 has been selected as the alum of the month for August 2013. Judge Anzalone is a member of the Law Center’s Alumni Leadership Council and participates in a number of the law center’s events and programs. Her accomplished career highlighted in the bio below. On behalf of the entire law school community, we extend our congratulations to Judge Anna Anzalone.
Judge Anna Anzalone was elected to the District Court Bench in 2003. A 1986 graduate of Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, Judge Anzalone was in private practice until 1994, when she joined the office of the Nassau County Attorney as a Deputy County Attorney. In 1996, she was appointed an Assistant Attorney General in the office of the NYS Attorney General, and then Law Secretary to County Court Judge Arthur M. Diamond from 1991 - 2001.
After taking the bench in January 2004, Judge Anzalone presided over District Court matters, handling a variety of cases in civil and criminal parts. Since January 2006, Judge Anzalone has presided over the Community and Treatment Courts, which provides an opportunity for offenders who are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction to receive treatment and change their lives.
Currently Judge Anzalone is also presiding over the Veterans’ Treatment Court (VTC), which offers assistance to veterans of all ages who have served our great country. The VTC participants receive benefits from the VA and mentoring from fellow veterans, while their cases are in court. Judge Anzalone is grateful for the privilege, and feels that the veterans deserve respect and an opportunity to regain their dignity and their cherished freedom.
Judge Anzalone is good memories of her law school days and is happy to be part of the Touro Law Center community.
