Thank you for visiting my website.  I hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about my background and contact me if you would like to learn more about the justice system in Cook County.

The upcoming election for Cook County Circuit Court Judge is incredibly important.  Cook County has one of the largest unified court systems in the world.  Judges are responsible for ensuring that all Cook County residents – regardless of background – have equal access to justice.

My own background demonstrates my commitment to fairness and equality.  I have served as an Assistant State’s Attorney for over 16 years and am known for fighting on behalf of the most vulnerable in Cook County – women and children who have been victims of serious abuse.

In the Domestic Violence Division, I prosecuted domestic violence matters and endangerment to children cases.  I was a featured speaker at schools, churches, police stations and on cable television shows regarding domestic violence issues.  As First Chair of the Felony Trial Division since 2008, I managed and supervised all Assistant State’s Attorneys and cases in a courtroom with over 300 active cases.  I have been responsible for all dispositions, including homicides, hate crimes, sexual assaults and other felonies.  I am also the first chair assigned to the WINGS court, which is a court call aimed at the rehabilitation of women and transgendered individuals charged with prostitution. As bar associations which have evaluated me have indicated, I have what it takes to serve as your next Cook County Circuit Court Judge.

While I believe I am the strongest candidate and hope to earn your vote, I also hope that you will take the time to learn about all the candidates for Judge and VOTE in the upcoming Democratic Primary.  This election is critical and you deserve a say in who administers justice in Cook County!
