The Court of Appeals needs a judge with the right experience — an appellate specialist. I have 16 years of experience in our appellate courts, starting as a law clerk at the Court of Appeals then strengthening my experience by handling hundreds of appeals in private practice. I will bring a strong work ethic, integrity and appellate expertise to the Court.
Experience (35 words max) I’ve got 27 years legal experience including 14 years judicial experience. I have more judicial experience than every N.C. Court of Appeals candidate combined. I’m a former Assistant District Attorney and attorney in private practice.

When any Judge talks to you they should tell you of their love and trust in our United States and North Carolina Constitutions. I believe as our constitution says, in the Sovereignty of the People – not the politicians and bureaucrats. I want to serve on your Court of Appeals to preserve the self-evident rights our Constitution guarantees.
