For Los Angeles
Superior Court Judge

I will use my 23 years of experience across the criminal and civil court systems to bring valuable perspective to the bench.
In my many years as a prosecutor, I have sometimes had to administer justice harshly to protect society. Judges must also be tough on criminals to protect society from criminal predators. That will be my top priority. But sometimes a judge (or prosecutor) must understand and appreciate individual circumstances. At times, justice and the law calls for mercy.
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.
I am honored and energized to have the opportunity to seek such an important position. Los Angeles County deserves to have judges who are experienced, trusted, balanced, and dedicated to equal access to justice for all.
I ask for your support and vote.
