Improve the Cook County Court System

Individuals enter the court system with the expectation that they will receive prompt and impartial decisions, and they deserve judges who will work hard and ensure that justice is provided in a timely, cost effective, and fair manner for everyone. If given the honor to serve our community as Circuit Court Judge, I will prioritize three principles:

First and foremost, equal justice for all.

All litigants deserve a level playing field regardless of status, with an application of the law to the facts to render an impartial decision. Each case will be treated with importance and every party in court will be treated with dignity, fairness, and compassion. As a conservative, I will uphold the Constitution and follow the law as it is written and intended.

Second, a more efficient system.

Parties often get unnecessarily “stuck” in the legal system, sometimes for years, at great cost. I will work hard and proactively to make prompt decisions, consistent with the law, so that litigants gain the justice that they deserve and can move on with their lives.

Third, rooting out bad actors from the legal arena.

With over 22 years of experience dealing with the Cook County courts, I have seen firsthand the many injustices that are inherent to the system. In family law, there is rampant manipulation by some attorneys and other third parties that needs to be “reined in.” Related to election law, the cases often involve underlying fraud and corruption, requiring a keen arbiter of the facts. With my skills in handling a wide variety of cases, I will ensure that litigants are not victimized by a sometimes “broken” legal arena.

With your support, I am committed to making a positive impact on our community and the Cook County court system as a whole.
