Candidate Statement:

(In response to the question, "Please explain why you believe you are qualified for the judicial position for which you are seeking election.")

I believe my experience as someone who has practiced on both sides and served as a Staff Attorney in Domestic Relations uniquely qualifies me to be a Domestic Relations judge. Because of this unique experience I have a goal to connect the community to the resources they need to reduce the cycle of them returning to court.
