Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr.

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

Q:  You were elected district attorney of Westchester county last November.  Please tell our membership about your legal career and what led you to this position.

A: After graduating from the University of Connecticut, I entered law school for the sole purpose of joining the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  After graduating from Syracuse Law School, I returned to Mount Vernon to study for the bar exam.  I soon joined the Mount Vernon Corporation Counsel’s office as a local prosecutor until I was invited to attend the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.  After working in Kentucky on a variety of investigations ranging from civil rights violations to public corruption, I returned home to accept a foreign counterintelligence assignment in Manhattan.  I was recruited out of the FBI by Bankers Trust Company to be an Assistant Vice President in their security division, tasked with planning, training and inspection oversight for branches and offices all over the world.  

President's Message

by Lisa Denig, Esq.

  So you may not want to hear this but…I am WAY past due for a mammogram. 

 Too much information?  Maybe, but “too much information” is exactly what women need when it comes to breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and, in anticipation of that, the Westchester Women’s Bar Association and JALBCA (Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert) joined together for a lunchtime seminar on breast cancer awareness on September 12, 2017 (see Hon. Sandra A. Forster’s article in this issue for more on this event).
