It has been an honor to serve the people of the State of
Alaska for the last two years. I am committed to performing my
duties as a District Court Judge to the best of my abilities, and I am
constantly working toward making our present legal system a better one.
To that end I serve as chair for the Alaska Supreme Court Standing
Committee on Criminal Pattern Jury Instructions.
I strive to be fair and impartial in my decisions and to treat all who appear before me with courtesy and respect. This commitment applies not only to attorneys but to all of the people of Alaska who come into the courthouse.
As a judge, I recognize that I have a tremendous responsibility and role in ensuring that there is a fair and prompt resolution to legal disputes. I have emphasized the settlement of cases before trial to save time and money for the parties and the judicial system.
I hope to continue to serve the people of Alaska to the best of my ability.
