The manner in which justice is dispensed is inextricably linked to the degree in which it is served.
To that end, I will strive to serve with patience, compassion, and respect. To listen well and rule wisely, keeping an equity lens focused on how laws are applied to the people who appear before me.
When analyzing facts against competing legal interests, I will use good judgment and sound discretion, and effectively communicate my decisions with clarity, kindness, and sensitivity.
A member of the bench has a fundamental role in assessing and improving the justice system to ensure equitable impacts for all who come before the court.
To fulfill this role, I will promote the just and effective operation of the court system, keeping an eye toward practices, decisions, and innovations that strike the right balance between the Rule of Law and recognition of our common humanity.
