“Every human being is defined by more than the one horrible thing he, she or they have done.”
Vision for the courtOur judges need to have an array of experiences and a broad perspective that enables them to serve this community in an unbiased way...For the 23 years I have practiced law, I have seen the judiciary bury its head in the sand. There must be a change to the composition of the bench before there will be a change in attitude and action.
Dealing with a Moral QuandaryI defend people not crimes. As an officer of the court, I am obligated to uphold laws and constitutions of both the United States and California, and I do so proudly each day. No matter the crime, no matter the accusation, each and every person deserves to be represented in the criminal courts and to be treated as a human being.”
