My occupation is City and County of San Francisco Superior Court Judge.
My qualifications are:
As a San Francisco Superior Court judge for almost nine years, I have presided in a courtroom where everyone is respected and treated fairly. As the Veterans Justice Court judge, I helped veterans to secure housing, and mental health and drug treatment, and to avoid incarceration.
In law school, I worked for Planned Parenthood’s law firm, a Public Defender Office, and the ACLU. As an attorney, I represented diverse clients in cases threatening their families, livelihood and liberty. I helped an AIDS patient regain custody of his daughter, and a Tibetan refugee secure asylum. I represented an African-American man on death row who was denied a fair trial.
As San Francisco Bar Association president, I co-founded and still work in the Law Academy which mentors high school students, provides summer jobs in law offices, and prepares them for college. I helped lead the Bar’s fight to preserve affirmative action and to achieve marriage equality.
I am honored that Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Senator Scott Wiener, Assemblymembers David Chiu and Phil Ting, State Board of Equalization member Fiona Ma, Mayor Mark Farrell, City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Assessor Carmen Chu, Board President London Breed, Supervisors Sandra Lee Fewer, Aaron Peskin, Katy Tang and Norman Yee, Sheriff Vicki Hennessy, former Sheriff Michael Hennessey, all 50 San Francisco Superior Court judges, all First District Court of Appeal justices, and many others support me. I humbly request your vote.
