Dedicated to Fairness and Justice

Thank you for visiting my committee's website. Seeking justice for crime victims in a fair and compassionate manner for everyone is an absolute imperative for our society. Throughout my career, I have done my utmost to advance these ideals. I have been an Assistant State's Attorney for 23 years and have truly enjoyed serving the public by being a zealous advocate for victims of homicide, sexual assault, child abuse and various other violent crimes. Fighting for others while being active and sensitive to the needs of our community has always been important to me. It will be an honor to continue doing so as a Circuit Court Judge and your support will be greatly appreciated.
