Question 1:

What educational, occupational, and community experiences have you had that qualify you for this judicial office?

I have been a trial attorney for nearly 16 years. During that time I have served as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. I have jury trial experience with misdemeanor, felony and complex civil litigation cases. I have had jury trials in seven different counties in Kentucky. I have handled cases in 48 different Kentucky counties. I have handled every type of case a District Judge hears. I also have successfully handled appeals. My trial experience and appellate experience have given me the knowledge and skills to hear cases and issue orders that comply with the law. The fact that I have equal experience as a prosecutor and a defense attorney means that I am capable of objectively viewing cases with an unbiased perspective and applying the law fairly. Additionally, having worked as a prosecutor and a public defender, I am accustomed to handling the high volume of cases seen in District Court which equates to effective docket management and timely orders.
