Judicial Philosophy (Max 250 words)

The courts are our last line of defense for our basic human rights and the justice system only works when all citizens, regardless of their economic status, are fairly treated by the courts in a manner that is efficient and ensures each individual's rights and dignity. As a district judge for nine years, I’ve presided over a diverse trial docket, including jury and bench trials, administrative appeals, and family law cases, with a commitment to access to justice and efficiency. I care about those who appear before our courts and I’m passionate about ensuring access to justice and upholding our fundamental rights. Courts must ensure that all people, including those with financial and language barriers, have access to justice. It is also essential that the judicial branch function independently from the executive and legislative branches of government and judges must be able to review legislation and administer justice without interference from the other branches.
