Bar Association Ratings: 

(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years)
Common Pleas Judge since July 6, 2020.  28 years of experience in all areas handled by the Common Pleas Court.

(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I have practiced law for 28 years. I have worked in all areas covered by the Common Pleas Court including: serious criminal cases (felonies), Domestic Relations, Civil Litigation and Foreclosures.

(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
With 28 years of experience I believe becoming a Judge would be the pinnacle of the practice of law. Recent turmoil in the criminal justice system will require an experienced person who is deeply familiar with the County and its citizens to restore the confidence in the system. I am completely committed to this community and want the best for my family and others.
