On April 2, 2018, our town lost a great jurist and community leader with the passing of Judge Nicholas J. Greisler, Jr.
Judge Greisler served our town with distinction in a variety of capacities including as a town judge from 1977 through 1999, and, prior to serving as judge, as a member of our town’s Zoning Board of Appeals.
Judge Greisler’s temperament and demeanor on and off the bench was inspiring and thoughtful. As a lawyer and as a Judge, Judge Greisler was well respected by his peers and he was chosen to serve as president of our Albany County Bar Association in 1991.
Our town justice system has been truly enhanced by the dedicated service of Judge Greisler.
I had the privilege of directly succeeding Judge Greisler as Colonie town judge and even now, serving in my 19th year as Colonie town judge, I know I cannot replace him.
Thank you Judge Greisler, your spirit remains in our courthouse every day.
— Hon. Peter G. Crummey
Senior Colonie Town Judge and Court Administrator
