Please describe why you would be the best candidate for the open judicial position:
I love what I do as an attorney, and I am blessed to have a wonderful law practice. But I am ready to serve the community as a District Court Judge, as I believe that justice is not one size fits all. I have been in private practice focusing on criminal defense and family law matters since 2004, and I have extensive jury trial experience.  I have the depth and breadth of experience in handling both criminal defense and family law cases, and I have handled matters in nearly every type of courtroom in the courthouse.   Most importantly, I understand the circumstances that real people face when required to enter the courtroom.   I am committed to bringing dignity and excellence to the bench while treating members of the Bar and the public with respect and professionalism.
