Southern Oregon is growing quickly, affecting our quality of life. I understand where we have been and where we're headed, and I have the passion necessary to take on the hard work of a Jackson County Circuit Court Judge.
I've practiced law for the past 26 years as a lawyer, mediator, arbitrator, state senator helping to write law, and as Judge Pro-Tem hearing cases. In each of these positions, I've worked with honesty, integrity and fairness.
As a Pro-Tem Judge, I was able to apply my knowledge of the law to complex cases. I understood this was the most important time in the lives of those involved in the cases, and it was an amazing, rewarding experience.
