Jim believes that we need judges who understand the human element to our judicial system and will administer justice fairly and without any agenda.
When you are working with families and children, or a struggling addict who is trying to turn their life around, or a single mother who is having trouble collecting child support, often times the people who come before district court are having the worst day of their lives. Being a judge is more than just following the law - it’s about recognizing the fact that both parties are human rather than another docket number. Jim is committed to administering fair decisions that bring justice for all parties involved.
Through hard work and determination, Jim earned a BA from the UNC Chapel Hill and later a JD from Campbell University Law School. He has spent his career helping people navigate the legal system because he is committed to seeing justice for everyday citizens.
