How does your legal/business experience make you the best candidate?Unlike my opponent, who is a tax attorney and professional politician, I have spent 16 years as a deputy district attorney here in Washoe County. I have prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor cases and any other cases, including murder. As a criminal lawyer, there is rarely a day that goes by that I am not in justice court. I have been in the Reno Justice Court when it was on the first floor of the Pioneer Hotel/Casino. I was pleased to celebrate the opening of its current home in the Mills Lane Building.
Association for several sessions in Carson City. If necessary, I would feel comfortable in representing the judges in such a capacity in the future. I have seen changes in the way the court operates as it has grown over the years. I have seen how the influence of the women judges' presence has changed the court for the better. I would bring the perspective of being a prosecutor and a defense attorney. I understand that compassion is sometimes appropriate in a case because a person's bad decision or action on one day of their life is not the sum of that person's total life. Therefore, I don't believe that I would be unduly influenced by either side's prominence or lack thereof in the community. I would always strive to do the right thing.
How would you help make the court more efficient?My basic philosophy is that if we can standardize (by way of forms like California docket sheets appear) certain repetitive ministerial duties so that in court support staff doesn't have to memorialize the proceeding, via their interpretation of the proceeding, then we can become more efficient as our population grows.

that would come before me. I have represented people on both sides of civil litigation in that court and it is important that in the end that both sides walk out feeling that I listened to each side and they came out being respected, even if their side didn't prevail. To me, I believe that most people just want to be heard. Sure, it is great to win. But even if you don't win, then if you feel that the judge really listened to your perspective and maybe disagreed and explained why they reached that decision, then you may not be happy but you are satisfied that the judge gave you her undivided attention and tried to do the right thing. Explaining why I reached the decision I did is so important. Most judges don't do that enough which leaves a hole in the proceedings that hasn't been filled at the end of the proceeding.
can hit the ground running. I know and enjoy the support staff. I have done thousands of cases in this court and know what to ask the defendant or litigants. Yes, I would welcome the additional training that I would receive at the Judicial College. But the voters can rest assured that, in me, they can feel comfortable that I can Converse Pink Pastel do the job on day one and do it fairly with confidence and appropriate temperament.
What is the biggest issue facing justice court?Notwithstanding budgetary concerns, as a person who practices before the court, it would appear to be meaningful access to the court. The court sees enough people to justify it opening a 6th department. Judges feel pressure to not give any one case short shrift versus not bogging down the system.
Do you have any ideas on how to reduce costs to the court budget, or how to create revenue?The judges need to become more proactive at the time of sentencing in collecting fines and fees. If they gathered more realistic information at sentencing regarding when the defendant could pay, there would be less reason for enforcement and increased revenue would result.
