Thompson Taps Feldman as Brooklyn Chief Assistant
Brooklyn District Attorney-elect Kenneth Thompson has announced the appointment of Mark Feldman, deputy inspector general for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority as chief assistant district attorney. As second-in-command to Thompson, Feldman will oversee the management of the office on a daily basis and direct specialized task forces and divisions.
Feldman was previously the head of the organized crime and racketeering section of the Eastern District U.S. Attorney's Office, where he supervised the prosecution of several mafia-related murder cases, including the leadership of all five Mafia families operating in New York. In addition, Feldman was an assistant district attorney in the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens District Attorney's offices.
"Mark Feldman is an outstanding lawyer and someone whose integrity is beyond reproach. Whether it's prosecuting organized crime rings or investigating fraud, he has proved himself to be one of the best prosecutors in New York," said Thompson in a statement.
