Former Westchester District Attorney Anthony Scarpino Jr. and former First Deputy District Attorney Paul Noto have joined Rye-based law firm Dorf & Nelson LLP.
Both will join as partners in the litigation department.
In a previous interview with The Journal News / lohud.com, Scarpino said the coronavirus pandemic has changed his plans. Instead of retiring, he decided to extend his long career.

“When people think of retirement they think of travel and things of that nature, but with COVID and winter you can’t travel, so you might as well work,” Scarpino said with a laugh. “If I retired in the winter, what would I do? I would watch reruns of Judge Judy and Lone Ranger, so you might as well get out and work.”
Jon Dorf, Managing Partner of Dorf & Nelson, welcomed Scarpino and Noto.
“They are superb lawyers who are highly respected in their fields and highly regarded in the community,” Dorf said in a statement. Their values and experience correspond to the high level of competence, integrity and prestige that we hold at Dorf. & Nelson.
