Judicial Philosophy (Max 250 words)I believe that a judge should strictly apply the law as written and not legislate from the bench. A judge must focus exclusively on the merits of each case rather than the identity of the parties or the attorneys involved in the case. These are tasks that I have performed for the past twelve years working as a staff attorney at the court and I will continue to do as a judge.
