IJEQC Finds Finkelstein Highly Qualified

Charles Finkelstein Deemed Highly Qualified for Civil Court Judge by Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission

The Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission (IJEQC) announced today that they found Charles Finklestein “highly qualified” for the role of Civil Court. New York’s IJEQC is a statewide network of independent screening panels for judicial candidates whose process is designed to ensure that voters are provided with as much information as possible about the qualifications of candidates for judicial office.

Recently, the judicial screening panels of both the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and the Brooklyn Bar Association also approved Finkelstein for Civil Court Judge. Both associations spoke with Finkelstein’s colleagues and adversaries, as well as judges he’s appeared before, in their screening; all parties found Finkelstein the Civil Judge candidate to have not only the appropriate knowledge of the law and appropriate demeanor, but also the right judicial temperament, integrity, candor and absence of political and other influences.

Finkelstein was a felony prosecutor in the Brooklyn D.A.’s office and an assistant special narcotics prosecutor in Manhattan. He is currently in private practice as a civil and criminal attorney. Finkelstein has been enthusiastically endorsed by Assemblyman Dov Hikind as well as the New York State Court Officers Association.

The primary election for Civil Court Judge will be held Thursday, September 13, 2012
