Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday that he has appointed or reappointed 26 judges to the New York City family, Criminal and Civil courts.

“The seasoned, committed and impartial judges appointed today are what New Yorkers deserve in court,” de Blasio said. “I look forward to working with these new and reappointed judges, who have the diverse experience, both personally and professionally, to represent the best interest of all who call this great city home.”

For many of these judges, it is too soon to say exactly which borough in the city they will end up, but at least three of the judges will be in Brooklyn as judges Hon. Christopher Robles, Hon. Claudia Daniels-DePeyster, Hon. John Hecht, Hon. Raymond Rodriguez and Hon. Frederick Arriaga were all reappointed to the bench.
