Partner, Shaub Ahmuty Citrin and
President of the Hellenic Lawyers Association
In close contact with a strong circle of friends from St. John’s
Law, Mamie Stathatos-Fulgieri fondly reminisces about Judge Re’s
class, the Law Revue Show and “study break legal critiques” of
My Cousin Vinny, a popular movie at the time.
Mamie grew up in Whitestone, New York, where she attended
Transfiguration Greek School in Corona. She then attended St.
John’s University where she was accepted to an early admission
program (starting college at age 16) and majored in Government
& Politics with a minor in English. In 1991, Mamie enrolled in
St. John’s Law School as a scholarship recipient of the Eastern
Orthodox Lawyers Association. St. John’s Law was her obvious
choice, as she recognized the Law School’s strong alumni
involvement and influence on regional and national politics.
Following graduation from the Law School in 1994, Mamie served
as an Assistant District Attorney with the Queens County District
Attorney's Office where she combated major narcotics trafficking by
facilitating search warrants and wiretaps. After three and a
half years of crime-fighting, Mamie joined the law firm of
Shaub Ahmuty Citrin and Spratt - a five-consecutive-year 100%
supporter of the Alumni Challenge program - where she is now a
Senior Attorney representing some of the largest medical
institutions in New York.
In 2008, Mamie was elected President of the Hellenic Lawyers
Association, which is the premiere organization of lawyers of Greek
descent in the New York metropolitan area. As a scholarship
recipient herself, Mamie has a strong desire to give back –
mobilizing the Hellenic Lawyers Association’s scholarship drive to
provide much needed funding for students of Hellenic descent who
are pursuing a law degree but need financial assistance.
In addition to her legal commitments, she is a committee member
of the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation in New York and the
DeRosa Foundation for Colon Cancer Research & Prevention.
When not lawyering, Mamie enjoys time with her husband Matthew
Fulgieri, President of Proto Insurance and their two children and
future alums, Matthew and Evan.
Reflecting on her post St. John’s Law career, Mamie urges recent
graduates to, “stay involved” with alma mater. “The
Law School has tremendous offerings after graduation to network
with fellow graduates doing outstanding legal work. They are
always willing to mentor the recent graduate – it’s a St. John’s
tradition. You must persevere, because success is never
