For Los Angeles
Superior Court Judge
Seat #16




IF ELECTED, I will use my 23 years of experience across the criminal and civil court systems to bring valuable perspective to the bench.

I have been a criminal prosecutor for over twelve years and worked as a criminal defense attorney and civil litigator at one of the largest and most respected law firms in the nation for over ten years, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Very few candidates have that breadth of legal experience. In recognition of my work, I earned a position as a Partner of the law firm. My time at this international law firm provided me with a unique and rare range of experience, perspective and insight into all aspects of the operation of both the criminal and civil courts.

I believe that a judge should not legislate from the bench, nor let politics or bias influence judicial decision making. Judges enforce the law and must respect the constitution, regardless of their personal opinions. 

Come November 6th I ask for your support and vote.
