Welcome

Individuals who join our State’s highest court must demonstrate integrity and a high commitment to the rule of law. And I hope you agree that persons who join the Supreme Court of North Carolina must have the prior, real-life experience of working as a judge inside our trial courtrooms.Untitled

My commitment to our system of justice is unparalleled – no other judge or attorney in North Carolina has ever joined the Supreme Court after having served as a judge at all other levels of our judiciary. I wish to bring this breadth of experience to the Supreme Court of North Carolina as I seek to continue to serve the people of this State.

My commitment to North Carolina and the administration of justice has been consistent. I have been engaged in our courts and the rule of law for twenty years.

I am a native North Carolinian who received my law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law. Between 1992-1996, I served as a criminal prosecutor in Cabarrus and Rowan Counties, N.C., and prosecuted homicide, sexual assault and other violent offenders. Between 1996-2002, I served as a Family and District Court Judge in Charlotte, N.C. and, in late-2002, was elected statewide as an Associate Judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals. In 2007, I was called to serve my country overseas by the Bush Administration as the appointed Justice Attaché to Iraq for the U.S. Department of Justice where I managed the U.S. Government’s diplomatic relationships with the Iraqi judiciary; managed the in-country rule of law team that consisted of Assistant U.S. Attorneys and a variety of law enforcement professionals; and coordinated the establishment of Major Crimes Courts where terrorists were prosecuted. In 2008, I worked in Kabul, Afghanistan as a Rule of Law and Courts Advisor and collaborated with members of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan and helped draft and advance guidelines for new civil commercial courts. Upon my return to the U.S. in early 2009, a bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers, businesspeople and community stakeholders endorsed my appointment to the North Carolina Superior Court by then-Governor Beverly Perdue.

I currently serve the Superior Court in counties all across western, central and eastern North Carolina and preside over violent crimes against person cases as well as civil conflicts.

It is my calling to serve the citizens of North Carolina, and with your support and vote I would be humbled to serve as one of your Supreme Court Justices.

Thank you.
