About Judge Koplen
Justice Michael A. Koplen was born in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1953. He attended University of Virginia, where he graduated magna cum laude with Honors before beginning a lengthy career as an attorney. He began his career on Wall Street, but in 1990, desiring more family time, he opened his own practice in Rockland County. In 1993, Judge Koplen was elected to the Legislature. He was then appointed Assistant County Attorney. He subsequently was elected to the New Hempstead Village Board, where he served for more than 14 years and served as Deputy Mayor. In 2014, Judge Koplen reconstituted the Court in New Hempstead and was elected Justice. He ran for Surrogate Court in 2017, but lost by a few votes in a very close election. Judge Koplen has adjudicated hundreds of cases in a wide range of legal areas in both civil and criminal law. Judge Koplen is often invited by other courts outside of his jurisdiction to sit as an Appointed Judge and adjudicate cases deemed too sensitive for the sitting judge in that jurisdiction. Judge Koplen is Director of Legal Studies at the Washington Online Learning Institute School of Legal Studies where he has taught thousands of students over a period of 19 years.
