Staying informed on state politics is important for residents of any state. In particular, residents should know how judges are picked so that they have a better understanding of the justice system. In general, a judge presides over trials and makes a decision on the sentencing of the party who is deemed guilty. This means that the picking of judges should be diligent because they make such serious decisions about justice and the citizens of a state.

With our legal representation from Pittman Roberts & Welsh, PLLC, you can feel confident in you claim and trust that we will fight to defend your rights, no matter who is the judge presiding over your case.
