East Meadow, New York. A fundraiser was held on August 4, 2011 at the Carltun on Eisenhower Park to support the election of Carmen St. George for Nassau County District Court Judge. St. George spoke before a room filled with her supporters, prominent attorneys, and community leaders about her life long dream of becoming a jurist.

St. George, whose maiden name is Markakis, paid tribute to her Greek roots and indicated that she was proud to be a part of the Hellenic Lawyers Association. Born in the United States, St. George is fluent in Greek and attended elementary school in Athens. Her father, Andreas E. Markakis, a native of Crete, was a shipowner. Growing up in Southold, Long Island, St. George was a member of the Church of Transfiguration of Christ in Mattituck, N.Y. Now that she resides in Nassau County she and her family, husband Norman, daughters, Alexandra (2 years) and Isabella (2 months) are members of the Cathedral of St. Paul in Hempstead, N.Y.

During the event St. George also acknowledged the support of her colleagues, committee members, and family, including father, Andreas, mother, Victoria Markakis, and sister Maria Markakis, who were all present that evening. St. George recounted her experience including six and a half years as an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting over fifty trials, including numerous felony and misdemeanor jury trials for the Queens County District Attorney’s office and seven and a half years as a trial attorney with the Manhattan law firm of Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP, focusing on asbestos related cases, including mesothelioma and lung cancer. St. George graduated cum laude from St. John’s University and earned her Juris Doctor from Fordham Law School.
