Jeanine Pirro is a highly respected former prosecutor, District Attorney, Judge, champion of victim’s rights, politician, author, and television personality.
As an assistant district attorney in 1978, she started one of the first domestic violence units in the nation, crusading on behalf of battered women and abused children. Her career has been a testament to fighting for the underdog, those helpless and silent victims of crime. As the first female to prosecute a murder case in Westchester County, New York history, she won that homicide and every felony case thereafter. She made history in 1990 as the first woman elected County Court Judge, and in 1993, the first woman elected DA of Westchester County.
As District Attorney, she made the fight against anti-Semitism the hallmark of her administration, when early in her first term swastikas and hate messages appeared in public areas and golf courses. In addition to the investigation and prosecution of those responsible, she organized a public march to warn that anti-Semitic crimes would not be tolerated in her county. She also lobbied for hate crime legislation to increase penalties on those crimes, arguing that the repercussions of anti-Semitic behavior have a ripple effect even deeper than the underlying crime itself. Thereafter she stood next to then Governor Pataki to witness the signing of New York’s historic hate crimes law. She arranged for members of the District Attorneys Association to visit the Holocaust museum in Washington DC, calling the murder of six million Jews the “greatest hate crime the world has ever seen.”

She has received numerous awards including the Ann Frank Award, Chabad Lubavitch, Abraham Fund, Ari Halberstam Award, and many others for her work fighting anti-Semitism.
