Bar Association Ratings:
(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years)
(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I received an undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and earned my law degree from Capital University School of Law. I am a litigation attorney at the law firm of Eastman & Smith, Ltd. in Toledo, Ohio, where I advocate on behalf of clients in trial and appellate courts throughout Ohio. I also worked as a Judicial Attorney at the Ohio Supreme Court for retired Justice Terrence O’Donnell. This position allowed me to gain in-depth knowledge of the appellate process. Additionally, I worked as an Attorney Rules Analyst for the Ohio General Assembly’s Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR), which is responsible for reviewing proposed rules from over 100 state agencies.
(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
I believe that we all have a duty to do good in our communities. Serving as a judge on the Sixth District Court of Appeals is one way that I can serve my community. I also have the experience, integrity, and temperament to be a judge. If elected, I will always seek to protect and preserve the rights of individuals and businesses and make decisions based on the law, not my personal or political beliefs.
