Statement from Judge Cozza:

I am committed to remaining in the Family Division of the court because I feel it's the most important place one can make a difference in the lives of young people and their families. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you followed the law and made a decision that protected a child from abuse, or just made their life a little better.[3] [7]
