Bar Association Ratings: 

(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years)
Law clerk in domestic relations court, Cuyahoga County 1980-1984

(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I have represented hundreds of clients in divorce, legal separation, dissolution, and domestic violence cases for over 35 years. I have handled all types of cases, routine to complicated, straightforward to highly contested, no children marriages to complicated custody issues, parties with no assets to multi-million dollar marital estates.

(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
My extensive experience has provided the appropriate skillset to make a seamless transition to judge. I began my legal career working for four different judges in the very court I am running for. I learned that even though the law and rules are the same in every county in Ohio, there are different ways to achieve results for litigants. I have practice before several domestic relations judges in several counties over 35 plus years which has provided keen insight into being a domestic relations judge.
