Please describe why you would be the best candidate for the open judicial position:
My greatest strength is my experience. I have practiced law for nearly 25 years, more than any other candidate in this race. I have represented corporations, small business owners and my favorite, individuals. I have litigated cases in Federal and State courts and administrative agencies across this state. I am a Charlotte native, and I know the challenges facing this community as it pertains to the justice system. Aside from the amount of experience, I have helped to enhance the companies, firms or the well-being of the people I have served. I envision a judicial system that affords all individuals access to its benefits and services.
