"The law in the courthouse belongs to all people alike. In serving the public as a Judge, my objective is to administer the law fairly and mannerly to all parties and their attorneys. When the parties leave the courthouse, it is my goal that they feel they were sufficiently heard in a respectful manner. I will offer the willingness to listen, the desire to understand, and the respect and consideration to everyone who comes before me."
