I am seeking this bench because of my unwavering commitment to the fundamental principles of justice and fairness. With a 17-year legal career that spans civil trial practice, service as an Assistant District Attorney, and appellate law experience, practiced across the United States in both state and federal courts, I bring a comprehensive perspective crucial for the effective administration of justice. I firmly believe that my experience, dedication, and compassion uniquely qualify me for this judicial role. 


Term limits are central to my campaign platform. I firmly believe that they are crucial for maintaining a judiciary that is responsive, diverse, and accountable to the community. By imposing term limits, we ensure that our courts benefit from a continuous infusion of new ideas, diverse perspectives, and a commitment to serving justice. This approach prevents any individual from holding onto power indefinitely, promoting a judiciary that reflects the evolving needs and values of the people it serves. Term limits are not just a part of my platform; they are a cornerstone of my commitment to a fair, dynamic, and accountable legal system for all.
