CANDIDATE STATEMENT:

I have practiced for 25 years in San Diego with Wingert Grebing. I specialize in civil trial work. I address business, real estate, public contract, tort and insurance disputes. I am solidly committed to the profession. I seek election based on, and will promote, the following objectives:

Access to Justice --

The judicial branch must be open and accessible to all. Effective access can only be a reality if the courts are open to all citizens; not just the privileged. The bar must encourage and support low cost and pro bono services.

Protection of the Public --

This is the core mission of the State Bar. Administration of justice requires officers of the court with integrity and honesty. The public deserves consistent and vigilant oversight of the profession.

An Independent, Funded Judiciary --

The courts must have a sustainable funding source to enable reliable and fair resolution of disputes, unfettered by staffing or logistical bottlenecks.

My leadership positions include:
--President, San Diego County Bar Association
--President, San Diego Defense Lawyers
--President, William L. Todd, Jr. Chapter, American Inns of Court
--Chair, Children at Risk Committee, Mock Trial Video program
--Vice-President, San Diego County Bar Foundation
--Treasurer, San Diego County Bar Association
--Treasurer and Adult Advisor, San Diego Teen Court
--Treasurer, San Diego Defense Lawyers
--Trustee, First United Methodist Church of San Diego
--Director, San Diego Barristers Club
--Coordinator, Pro Bono Legal Services, 2003 and 2007 San Diego wildfires
