    One of my favorite judges and a really nice person. Started out as a young legal aid attorney in 1983 assigned to his part. He will be greatly missed.

  • Ken Taub

    As a judge, Al Tomei demonstrated integrity, compassion, and great wisdom. He always treated both prosecutors and the defense bar equally and with respect. His passing is a loss to all in the Brooklyn legal community. My condolences to his family.
