Each probate matter is a family with needs beyond legal concerns. Families who grieve for the loss of a loved one, or worry for the well-being of a grandchild and the parent who has addiction problems. A son fearful for a mom with dementia or parents concerned that their child with intellectual disabilities will be 18 but continues to need support. Being probate judge is not just about the law – it’s about your family.
Since my first election in 1998 as your probate judge, I have been extensively involved with many improvements to the court system through court consolidations that saved taxpayers millions of dollars to working as an originating judge in the first regional children’s probate court, a nationally awarded court system.
