List your judicial experience (courts and years)
Supreme Court of Ohio, Judicial Extern to Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton (Fall-Winter 2011)
What non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
My civil background has prepared me for the often-complex business and commercial cases that I will hear. In my corporate capacity, I provide oversight of legal issues involving company operations and advise business owners and senior executives to ensure legal compliance and mitigation of risk across their business. I have attained experience in the array of contracts and dispute resolution matters that a general counsel to a large and diverse company can be expected to encounter and have gained a high level of expertise in state and federal employment law. My employment law experience is in my opinion material for a position on the Franklin County Common Pleas bench. That is because my role, and the experience I have gained, is more than pure “lawyering.” Throughout my career I have served as the company’s point person in direct interaction with employee matters, including mediating employment disputes, engaging directly in employee disciplinary matters, and in promoting a work atmosphere of fairness, respect and harmony. I will bring a proper judicial temperament and a quick learning ability to he bench and I will apply the laws and sentencing guidelines with consistency.
Why are you running for this particular court seat?
I have always had the desire to be in public service and I believe that working in the judicial capacity is the highest form of public service that a lawyer can engage in.
