My Top 3 Priorities

  • Institute programs in Department three that will make that department more user-friendly for self represented litigants.
  • Do everything possible on my part to restore confidence in the family law division at the Court.
  • Explore the possibility of conducting the Department’s business in Vallejo one or more days per week to better accommodate the needs of our Vallejo parties.
