Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I was elected as a Judge of the Civil Court in 2007 and currently serve as an Acting Justice of the Supreme Court. I believe litigants deserve a judge who will be fair, knows the law, and appreciates how important a case is to the parties, no matter how big or small the case. A judge also should be patient and treat the parties and attorneys with respect. Each day I strive to bring these qualities to the bench and will continue to do so with your vote.
