For the last three election cycles, the North Carolina Bar Association has released judicial scores for incumbent judges up for re-election and for non-incumbent candidates challenging for District Court seats. These judicial assessments are compiled from surveys of North Carolina lawyers who have acquired sufficient professional interaction with incumbent judges and non-incumbent candidates in each race. The evaluations are assessed on each candidate’s performance in six categories: Integrity and Impartiality; Legal Ability; Professionalism; Communication; Administrative Skills; and Overall Performance.
I am pleased to announce that I have been assessed a 4.33/5.00, which is the highest score in the race for District Court 14, and affirms my experience, administrative and professional aptitude I have obtained in the process of serving as District Court Supervisor since 2012.
