Kristin is a partner in the law firm of Corrado & Corrado, Esqs., with her father, Robert E. Corrado, and they have a general practice family firm specializing in real estate and probate transactions.

As County Clerk, Kristin opened a satellite office in Wanaque and created a “mobile office” in order to expand the Outreach Program of the Clerk’s Office for passports and notary services throughout the County, including night and Saturday hours. She managed to increase these services and hours at no cost to the taxpayers of Passaic County. In 2016, in-person early voting was offered at both the Paterson and satellite offices for the first time in the County’s history, thus increasing citizens’ opportunities to participate in local, county, state, and federal elections.
