Class of 1985
Alecia Mazzo, a 1985 Rush-Henrietta graduate, is a family court judge who cares deeply about her community.
In 2018, Mazzo was elected to a 10-year term as Monroe County Family Court Judge. She adjudicates matters involving custody and visitation, abuse and neglect, juvenile delinquency, and family offenses, such as domestic violence. She approaches her work with the goal of making decisions that are in the best interest of children.
After graduating from Charles H. Roth High School, she received her associate’s degree in liberal arts from Monroe Community College. Mazzo went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in political science from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
She then attended Ohio Northern University, where she received her law degree. Admitted to the New York state bar in 1994, Mazzo began practicing law in private practice.
During her time in private practice, Mazzo also was a pro-bono attorney supporting the Volunteer Legal Services Project, handled cases through the Assigned Counsel Program, and worked part-time for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at the law library.
Subsequently, Mazzo worked for 20 years as a deputy county attorney for Monroe County Law Department, serving in three different divisions: Child Support Enforcement Unit, Children’s Services Unit, and General Legal Services.
She also served on the Webster Town Board from 2016 to 2018, until her election as family court judge.
Mazzo, who attended Leary Elementary and Burger Junior High School, credits a number of teachers for inspiring her to become the person she is today. Specifically, she cites Mr. Capers, Mr. DeCamp, Mr. Sisson, Mrs. Staffeld, and Mr. VanLare.
“It seems that my most memorable teachers brought me exactly where I am today as a judge,” she says.
Mazzo lives in Webster with her daughter, Alana. It is our pleasure to welcome Alecia Mazzo to the Rush-Henrietta Alumni Council Hall of Fame!
