Statement: I am a third-generation lawyer in Adams County who
cares deeply about law and justice in our County. Superior Court is the
primary trial court in Washington. A Superior Court Judge of necessity
must have a wealth of legal experience. Diverse trial experience is
essential to enable the judge to perform the chief role in the
courtroom. I have years of actual experience preparing and trying cases,
both criminal and civil. I have successfully argued cases before the
Washington State Supreme Court, Washington State Court of Appeals and
the Federal Court for the Eastern District of Washington. I have
represented clients in litigation in the Superior Court in 10 counties
in the State of Washington, Federal Court and the National Appeals
Division. I also have broad experience in an office practice that has
covered nearly all phases of the practice of law. I have received the
highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards from Martindale -
Hubbell, based upon a survey of attorneys and judges. I would be honored
to serve the people of Adams County as your Superior Court Judge.
