Longtime CUNY Law Board of Visitors member and donor David F. Everett was elected county court judge in Westchester County, New York. He won his election with a decisive 58 percent of the vote.
Everett comes to the bench with extensive criminal trial court experience. He was an assistant district attorney for more than 12 years in Queens and Brooklyn before launching his own civil trial and criminal defense law practice in New York more than 15 years ago.
He is a retired colonel, United States Army Reserve, with combat zone deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait. When speaking last year about his inspiration to become a lawyer, Everett said, "I wanted to be part of an endeavor where I could really make a difference in helping to ensure that justice was done."
