President Sherry Levin Wallach Calls Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence Marks Ultimate Public Servant
Sherry Levin Wallach, president of the New York State Bar Association, issued the following statement on the retirement of Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence K. Marks:
“Judge Marks has been the ultimate public servant for more than 30 years, culminating in his elevation to chief administrative judge in 2015. The leaders of the New York State Bar Association have had the privilege of working with Judge Marks on many issues during his tenure. His knowledge and thoughtfulness provided a strong basis for our productive working relationship.
He deftly supervised one of the most complex court systems in the country, consisting of eleven trial courts, four Appellate Divisions, three Appellate Terms, and the Court of Appeals. He astutely managed a budget of more than $2 billion and oversaw more than 16,000 employees. As chief administrative judge, he served three chief judges with distinction including Acting Chief Judge Anthony Cannataro.
We at the New York State Bar Association wish Judge Marks the best of everything in his retirement.”
