I believe that that law is a powerful tool for good and can help strengthen communities when paired with compassion and fairness. Throughout my life I have sought to deepen my understanding of law in the courtroom, working with clients, and through continuous study of the American jurisprudence. 

As a native Chicagoan, I am proud to serve my community as a judge in Cook County. 

Leading with compassion and fairness
