A former Nassau County Court judge has joined a boutique firm to lead its divorce law practice and assist with the firm’s criminal and civil litigation matters.

Gerstman Schwartz & Malito has brought on as a partner Tammy Robbins, who served as a judge for the past 10 years. Robbins did not win re-election in November.

In an interview, Robbins said she would bring her knowledge of how to evaluate and expeditiously dispose cases. She said she has heard of too many cases that lasted for four or five years.

“It shouldn’t cost half a million dollars and five years to get divorced,” she said.

Robbins, 53, is a former Nassau County prosecutor who specialized in narcotics and gang prosecutions, as well as a law secretary in the Nassau County courts, including the Family Court, where she sat during her first year on the bench. She also presided over the domestic violence part and the felony DWI trial court.

Robbins is a graduate of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University.

Gerstman Schwartz & Malito is a five-attorney firm with offices in Garden City, Manhattan and Albany. It also has a lobbying arm, Gotham Government Relations.
