Biographical Information

If elected, what will you do both on and off the bench to ensure that all Monroe County residents have access to justice?

Education Lehigh University, B.A.; Certified by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as qualified to serve as a Magisterial District Judge.
Current Occupation Serving as Magisterial District Judge since July 2007
Qualifications for Office Certified by the PA Supreme Court, served for 12 years, presided over more than 75,000 cases, attended the Pennsylvania Minor Judiciary Education Board Continuing Legal Education 2006-2018; Member of Monroe County Criminal Justice Advisory Board, appointed to serve on the Special Court Judges Association Of Pennsylvania Court Administration Committee
District Courts are Community Courts and are designed for access to justice. District Courts are located within the geographical area the Judge serves. We handle traffic and nontraffic summary cases, criminal cases to determine bail and if a case moves to County Court, civil cases under $12,000, landlord tenant cases, issuing emergency protection from abuse orders and search and arrest warrants. Most people only ever have contact with District Courts and find it’s fairly easy to experience court without the assistance of an attorney. Five well trained courteous clerks work with me to assist the public. We’re prohibited from giving legal advice, but we explain the process and procedures and when needed refer people to legal aide, public defenders or the Bar Assoc.’s Lawyer Referral Program. I’ve served as your Magisterial District Judge for 12 years. My goal is to ensure Monroe County residents have access to justice and to always explain the Court’s function while on and off the bench.
