Reader Opinion: Halverson for judge


I have known Judge Halverson for 23 years. When he was a practicing attorney, I saw first-hand how he treated his clients with respect and provided them with exceptional legal representation. Prior to his appointment to the bench, he worked in numerous areas of the law. His knowledge and experience is second to none.

As a local attorney, people frequently ask me about particular judges, especially when one has been assigned to their case. Being involved in a legal matter can be a very stressful experience. I tell people to rest assured if their case has been assigned to Judge Halverson, because he is fair, knowledgeable, and experienced.

The role of a judge is to be nonpartisan and to apply the law to the facts. Even though I have known Judge Halverson for 23 years, I do not know his political beliefs. Yet another quality that makes him a judge with integrity.
