My career as a legislative lawyer has uniquely prepared me to be a Superior Court Judge.  I have worked tirelessly on behalf of the people of this state to aid our elected officials in writing the very laws that are at the heart of every case that comes before the court. I have the proven ability to perform the kind of reasoned, objective, and unbiased legal analysis that is key not only to the legislative process, but to informed and fair judicial decision-making.
