My pick is Michael Meyer von Bremen. He's practiced for 25 years (has a thriving practice in Albany), he's served in the state senate for 10 years with distinction, he's backed by both democrats and republicans, and his integrity is beyond reproach--a real class act.
On top of that he's an extremely cool and normal guy, i.e. he's fair and won't think he's the next incarnation of God when he puts on a black robe.
Unlike the other candidates who have very narrow focuses (Adkins--divorce law only (which Court of Appeals doesn't even hear); McFadden--only appeals; McGuire-corporate law only), he's had tons of diverse and real world experience. He's represented both plaintiffs and defendants, he's tried scores of cases before juries, he's appeared before the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, he's handled corporate transactions and real estate deals, he's represented poor clients and wealthy ones.
