My Top 3 Priorities

  • To faithfully honor my oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America and the state of California
  • To provide all persons appearing before my court with a fair and prompt hearing, treating all with courtesy and respect, and making my decisions after thoughtful research of the law and reflection on its application to the case before the court.
  • To observe at all times the judicial canons of ethics found in the California Code of Judicial Ethics.
