Experience (35 words max) Retired Marine Corps Judge Advocate. Served two tours in Iraq. Prosecuted and defended hundreds of criminal cases. Represented clients in civil cases throughout North Carolina’s courts. North Carolina Board Certified Appellate Law Specialist.
A country is only as good as its courts, and courts are only as good as their judges. I’ve handled all types of cases the Superior Court hears (civil actions, felonies, and administrative appeals). That unmatched range of experience makes me uniquely prepared to serve as a Superior Court Judge.
Experience (35 words max) Extensive Superior Court experience. Was a prosecutor for 29 years prior to becoming a Superior Court Judge. Tried over 250 jury trials and handled thousands of cases including numerous high profile felonies in Guilford County.
I was proud to accept the appointment to the Superior Court bench by Governor Roy Cooper. I brought a reputation of honesty, integrity, experience and hard work with me from my time as a prosecutor. While serving on the bench I have proven I am fair and impartial to all.
