Rockland County Executive Ed Day chose Thomas E. Humbach as County Attorney for Rockland.
"The people of Rockland County will be well served by Tom's legal acumen and extensive litigation experience," Day said. "I am confident that his talents and expertise, especially in environmental law, will help us establish one of the leading county attorney's offices in the state."
Humbach, who opened the Law Office of Thomas E. Humbach in Pearl River in 2008, brings over 19 years of private sector legal experience. He is a graduate of Penn State University and earned his Juris Doctorate at Pace University School of Law in White Plains.
Hambach worked his way up to Senior Litigation Associate at the firm of Montclare & Wachter, then moved on to Frederick J. Murphy & Associates, where he became a partner.
As Rockland County Attorney, he will represent the county in civil legal matters, trials and appeals, draft contracts and resolutions and provide legal advise to the County Executive, the legislature and department personnel.
