Professional Experience

Appointed Deputy Monroe County Public Administrator, June 21, 2011, by Surrogate Edmund A. Calvaruso and re-appointed in January 2015 by Surrogate John M. Owens.

I have been surrounded by the law my entire life and it is something that I have always been fascinated with. I saw the passion that my father (Frank B. Iacovangelo) and my uncle (Bernard J. Iacovangelo) have for the law. I admired that. Their commitment to their clients and excitement about the practice of law made me want to be a part of it. I believe in that same passion and commitment to the client and to the people of this community. The client always comes first. That is what dad always says. Treat people how you would like to be treated. It takes commitment and hard work. We are here to help people, in whatever aspect of their lives that might be.
