(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I have been practicing law for 25 years. I have experience in both criminal and civil law. As an Assistant City of Cincinnati Prosecutor, I tried over 500 bench and jury trials and managed 7,500 criminal cases annually. As an Assistant City of Cincinnati Solicitor, I defended the City in civil actions and managed the City’s tax collection unit.

(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
Judges should be experienced in all areas of the law at the various court levels. As I have been in the judicial system for over 13 years, I am seeking this particular seat for personal growth. I have worked my way up from the lowest courts in the state, steadily advancing to the next level. With the retirement of two of our Common Pleas Judges, this is an opportunity to bring my judicial experience to the next level. When it comes to Judges, experience matters.
