Fair

My goal is to be impartial and equitable in all matters before the court while allowing parties to have their matters heard and decisions made without delay.

Balanced

I have practiced both civil and criminal law.  I have seen our system of justice at work as a prosecutor and defense attorney.  I understand the importance of taking all legally admissible evidence into account when making decisions.

Access to Justice

I will work to ensure all parties before the court are treated with dignity and respect.  I believe while the decisions made may not be favorable, parties are more likely to accept  the decisions of the court if they have the benefit of a zealous advocate and are allowed to present their case.
