Showing The Way
As District Attorney, my principal goal is to create an Office where prosecution is based on being smart, brave, and responsive.
A litigation attorney must have a complete toolbox of advanced trial skills and resources to achieve success.
When I started prosecuting sex offenses, no one was available to mentor me in this complex area of law. As I taught myself new skill sets and developed a network of resources, I started to grow as an attorney and achieve success.
I pledge to mentor and develop the competencies of all our attorneys and provide them with the resources required to succeed in trial.
One of the greatest coaches of all time, John Wooden said, “The strongest steel is well-founded self-belief. It is earned, not given.”
The cornerstones of an attorney having a well-founded sense of self-belief are a strong foundation of fundamental trial skills, advanced trial techniques adapted for the digital age, and organizational tools required to navigate complex cases.
Through in-house education, training, and accountability, I pledge to develop attorneys who have the courage necessary to stand up for our victims and communities.
I believe that the District Attorney’s Office is one part of an entire team essential for keeping our communities safe.
As a team member we are not the only voice in how that job should be done.
Through improved communication and accountability, I pledge to work together with our law enforcement partners, victims, and communities to prioritize our efforts, support our victims, and insure the best possible outcomes for our cases.
