(SI Advance) STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It probably wouldn't be stretching a point to say Timothy Koller is the glue that has helped hold together the Staten Island district attorney's office for more than three decades.
Admired for his keen legal mind and rapport with judges, lawyers, cops and even the accused, Koller has served three different D.A.s -- two Democrats and a Republican -- during more than 31 years as an assistant district attorney. In fact, Koller, who's the executive assistant district attorney, has the longest tenure of any prosecutor in borough history, said District Attorney Daniel Donovan.
Koller yesterday was rewarded for his outstanding work with the prestigious Robert M. Morgenthau Award, which Donovan helped create in honor of the legendary former Manhattan district attorney. It is presented annually to four assistant district attorneys in four designated regions of the state.
