Non-Judicial Legal Experience:
I have been a licensed attorney in Ohio since 2005.

I have worked with attorneys, mediators, and judges across the state at all levels.
I also served as a State Senator from 2008-2018. The opportunity to represent the Mahoning Valley in Columbus allowed me to work on changes to the law that would benefit my community. I worked with stakeholders everyday in order to make sure that my constituents voices were heard. I spent my time participating in hearings, studying the Ohio Revised Code, interviewing witnesses, and gathering facts. I then was able to make informed votes and clearly explain my positions and rationale for the proposals that I recommended.

Why are you running for this particular court seat?
I want to make a positive impact in the lives of others and benefit my community. As a lawyer, that is my goal each and every day when I drive to work. As a County Court judge, I will have that opportunity and will always take it seriously. I will thoroughly work with victims, law enforcement, attorneys, and defendants in order to find fair resolutions to the matters presented to the court. I will always provide an open minded and unbiased courtroom, no matter the circumstances surrounding the case. I will consider that facts of the matter and follow the law as written. I will always put the community first and will not make any of my decisions without considering all sides and properly deliberating.

¿Que experiencia legal no judicial le capacita para ser juez?
He sido abogado con licencia en el estado de Ohio desde del 2005. Primeramente he manejado casos de Workers Compensation (Compensación de trabajadores) en representación a trabajadores que han sido lesionados, pero también he representado a personas involucradas en accidentes de automóvil y otras lesiones personales, disposición de testamentos, asuntos domésticos, conflictos de contratos y asuntos criminales. He trabajado con licenciados, mediadores, y jueces a través del estado en todos niveles.
También serví como Senador del 2008-2018. La oportunidad para representar al condado de Mahoning en Columbus me permitió trabajar en hacer cambios a la ley que sería beneficioso para mi comunidad. Trabajé con interesados todos los días para asegurar que las voces de mis constituyentes fueran escuchadas. Ocupé mi tiempo participando en audiencias, estudiando el Ohio Revised Code (Code Revisado de Ohio), entrevistando testigos y adquiriendo información. Entonces podría hacer votos informados y claramente explicar mi posición racional para las propuestas que les recomendaba.

¿Por qué se está postulando para este puesto?
Quiero hacer un impacto positivo en las vidas de otros y beneficiar a mi comunidad. Como abogado, esa es mi meta todos los días cuando conduzco a mi trabajo. Como Juez del Condado, tendré esa oportunidad y siempre lo tomaré seriamente. Trabajaré al profundamente con víctimas, oficiales de la ley , licenciados y defensores para buscar resoluciones justas para los asuntos presentados a la corte. Siempre tendré una mente abierta e imparcial en la sala del tribunal, sin importar las circunstancias alrededor del caso. Consideraré los datos del asunto y seguiré la ley como está escrita. Siempre pondré a la comunidad primero y no tomare mis decisiones sin considerar todos los lados correctamente y deliberadamente.
