As a lawyer and community leader, I have fought for justice and equality in and out of the courtroom. I believe this experience and perspective make me uniquely qualified to serve as a Common Pleas judge in Hamilton County.

My priorities as judge will be:


To treat everyone in my courtroom, regardless of their background, with the utmost respect;


To ensure attorneys practicing before me fulfill their obligations to their clients and the court, I will lead by example and cultivate a reputation as a hard-working, well-prepared, and conscientious judge; and


To advocate for more transparency in criminal sentencing, so that this information is readily available to both the public and my fellow judges, which will encourage uniformity in sentences.

I am committed to being a judge who makes fair and just rulings that also serve the public interest, including ensuring the safety of our community.
