Meet Judge Erica Clarke
Let's keep her in Syracuse City Court
"Criminal law is my passion. I enjoy working with people and assisting them through some of the hardest times of their lives. It is extremely rewarding to know that everyday I help others -- many of whom are members of the same community from which I came -- navigate a system that can be very complex and intimidating."

Walsh picks defense attorney with ‘humble beginnings’ as Syracuse’s newest judge
"Mayor Ben Walsh will appoint Erica Clarke, a Syracuse defense attorney, to fill a vacant judge seat in the Syracuse City Court..."
"I applaud Mayor Ben Walsh’s selection of Erica Clarke to fill the recent vacancy on the Syracuse City Court bench.
During my second term on the Onondaga County Court bench, Erica prosecuted many cases in my part. She was always highly ethical, honest, collegial and above all else, fair.
During my service as the City of Syracuse Corporation Counsel in 2017, I was fortunate to be able to hire her as a litigator for the City. Once again, she performed admirably in representing the City and its residents."
- Judge Joseph Fahey
