Biography

I am a trial lawyer with experience trying both civil and criminal jury trials.  One of the biggest problems we face as lawyers is that most of our Judges who serve on the bench are not trial lawyers.  They have no concept at all about what is involved in being a trial lawyer, or what its like for our clients to find themselves in a system that is cost prohibitive.  They do not understand evidence rules or what evidence is.  They also do not understand due process, nor do they care to ensure it is provided.  I am currently running for Cochise County Superior Court Judge.  I hope to work from the inside to generate a movement to Amend the Constitution to a) require all Judges have minimal trial experience in both criminal and civil courts, and b) that all Justices of the Peace be Lawyers.  A lot has changed since Arizona became a state.   While it may have made sense in 1887 for a Justice of the Peace not to be a lawyer, back when all of the Arizona Revised Code could fit into one book, it does not make sense today when the Arizona Revised Code includes more than 58 volumes.
