JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY

“I am a ‘judicial conservative,’ which means that I honor the oath of office to ‘preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States, and of this State’ by faithfully following the law as it was enacted by the Legislature or enshrined by the people in the Constitution; not by making it up.”
