Letters to the Editor: Election 2021: Support for Maria Patrizio

June 15, 2020

Maria Patrizio probably disagrees with me on many hot button political issues, but I am
supporting her in the race for Orange County Family Court judge because she is the best
candidate for the job. A Family Court judge does not make decisions about political issues; she
makes decisions about what is in the best interests of the children and families who appear
before her. Each case presents a unique set of circumstances, and I am certain that Ms.
Patrizio will listen respectfully to everyone involved and make a reasonable and practical
decision for each family. Because of her calm demeanor and amazing time management skills,
Ms. Patrizio will also make the Family Court experience less stressful and more efficient than it
currently is.
Ms. Patrizio knows what she is doing because she has been an attorney in Orange County
Family Court on a full-time basis since 1999, and she literally wrote the book on Family Court.
Her book, Successfully Navigating Family Court in New York, is a guide book for the people
who find themselves in Family Court. She wrote it after giving advice to thousands of her
More important than all of her professional achievements, however, is the fact that Ms.
Patrizio just “gets it.” She understands people. She understands their challenges. She
understands what children and families need.
I urge you to vote for Maria Patrizio in the primary on June 23. Orange County needs her
kindness, her intelligence, and her level of excellence on the Family Court bench.
