Widely regarded as a tough, ambitious, and focused woman, Mimi Rocah is a former Assistant United States attorney who has become one of the highly regarded figures in America’s legal world. Starting from the bottom, she grew through the ranks to the very top and is now the Democrat nominee for Westchester District Attorney Election.
A well-spoken and articulate woman, Mimi is also a popular television personality and legal commentator having been contracted by two widely-known television news networks, MSNBC and NBC News, to work as a legal analyst. Her work over the years has won her awards and enormous respect.
Mimi Rocah Started Her Career With a New York-Based Law Firm
Mimi Rocah was born in the United States on the 28th of June 1970. She graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992 and later in 1997, bagged a Juris Doctorate (JD) from the New York University School of Law. Due to her excellent performance, she was inducted into the Order of Coif honorary society of the university.
Rocah landed her first job at a New York-based Law firm, Cravath, Swain, and Moore, and while there, she served as a litigation associate. Soon after, she gained an administrative job, working as a clerk in the office of the United States District Court Judge, John Gleeson, in the Eastern District of New York.
During that time, she also worked as a clerk for Chester J. Straub who was occupying the position of the Senior United States Circuit Judge for the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
Becoming an Assistant United States Attorney Dragged Her Into The Limelight
By February 2001, Mimi Rocah became widely recognized, having landed the position of the Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York.
Mimi held the position for a long period of 16 years. During that time, she tried many criminal cases and carried out several prosecutions, earning her the reputation of a no-nonsense woman who was bent on doing her job the proper way.
While Mimi Rocah was still an Assistant US attorney, she was named among the Chiefs of the White Plains Division as a result of her enormous positive contribution to the society. There, she continued with her fight against crime, working as the chairman of the multi-county task force on human trafficking.
Also, during her time as a Co-Chief of the White Plains Division, the NBC legal analyst worked as the major liaison officer by collaborating with other agencies in looking into White Plains’ cases to reinstate full course of justice.
Unsurprisingly, the leadership roles that Mimi Rocah had been playing in the society didn’t go unnoticed as she was publicly recognized with the Women in Federal Law Enforcement Leadership Award in 2016.
Winning The Democratic Primary for Westchester County District Attorney
She joined the prestigious Pace Law School situated in New York as a Criminal Justice fellow. At the Law School, the television personality seizes the opportunity to educate students on Criminal Justice topics such as sex and human trafficking by organizing conferences and seminars.
With her popularity shooting through the roof, Mimi Rocah decided to run for Westchester District Attorney. She did exactly that and in July 2020, she emerged the winner of the Democratic primary for Westchester County district attorney, beating the incumbent Anthony Scarpino.
As expected, Mimi Rocah was very thrilled after her big win and went ahead to tweet about it, motivating her followers with the development.
I just went through a Democratoc primary where men told me I needed to "wait my turn” & called me “too ambitious.” I won by almost 75%. These tropes are not in line with most Democratic voters of today & should be rejected & denouced by party leaders from @JoeBiden on down.
