Voter Information for the 3rd Division
Candidates for the 3rd Division:
I am honored to be nominated as a candidate for Bar Commission. I have enjoyed a diverse and rich law practice since graduating from the S.J. Quinney College of Law more than 20 years ago. I have practiced criminal and civil law, worked in large and small law firms, and divided my litigation practice between plaintiffs and defense work. Now, as a mediator, I enjoy bringing adverse parties together to find solutions to even the most complex of problems. I have served on several Bar committees, most recently as chair of the Innovation in Law Practice Committee.
I am familiar with the many challenges facing the Bar. The challenges span a spectrum of issues, practice areas, geographical locations, and generational differences. Some of these challenges include renewed threats to judicial independence and professional self-governance, proposals to tax legal services, barriers to providing meaningful access to justice, and perennial budgetary concerns to properly fund our court system. I hope to have the opportunity to bring my positive energy and experience to bear in assisting the Bar as it navigates these and many other issues in our ever-changing professional landscape.
Please accept my thanks for considering my candidacy.
