Berkeley College honored Jessica M. Mahoney of Middletown, NY, with the 2018 Alumni of the Year award during its Commencement ceremony on May 11, 2018, at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The award is presented annually to a Berkeley College graduate who has enjoyed professional success and fulfillment through community service.

Ms. Mahoney was on the fast track when she graduated from Berkeley College with a Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies – Criminal Justice in 2011. She took courses at Berkeley College campuses in Midtown Manhattan, White Plains, NY, and online. Her dream since childhood was to become a lawyer.

“I knew Berkeley College was the right choice for me,” Ms. Mahoney said.  “I was able to live at home, work part-time, and obtain an internship at a local law office while earning my degree.”

Ms. Mahoney graduated from Albany Law School in 2014, the same year she sat for the New York State Bar Exam. By 2015 she was sworn in as an Attorney and Counsellor at Law by the Second Department of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York.

Focusing primarily in the areas of real property and municipal law, Ms. Mahoney opened her own firm, JM Mahoney Law PLLC, in September 2017. Prior to that she was an Associate Attorney at The Law Office of Elizabeth K. Cassidy PLLC, in Warwick, NY, and Drake Loeb PLLC, in New Windsor, NY. Ms. Mahoney also recently started teaching as an adjunct professor at Berkeley College.

Ms. Mahoney resides in Middletown, NY, with her husband and their daughter.
