Q: Why should the voters choose you for this position?

Having tried over 30 jury trials as lead counsel and possessing extensive complex commercial litigation experience, I will bring much-needed business litigation and trial experience to our bench. Also, I am the only candidate in this race to have been named as “Well-Qualified” to serve as Judge of the Fulton Superior Court by the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission. As a strict constructionist, I pledge to apply the law as written and not legislate a personal or political agenda from the bench. Furthermore, I will apply efficient and effective case-management practices to timely move both criminal and civil cases and apply harsher sentencing for repeat offenders and those persons who have committed violent crimes.

Q: Why should the voters choose you for this position?

I have over 30 years of experience in the public safety and legal fields. As a police officer I enforced and prosecuted the law; as a public defender I defended the law; and as a city attorney I drafted the law. As the next Superior Court judge of Fulton County, I have the necessary experience to interpret the law.
