CARMEN PACHECO

ready, willing, and able

I am ready willing and able to bring my commitment to the community at large as a Judge. Being a community lawyer and advocate, I provide pro bono legal services regularly.  Today, given the health and economic crisis, more lawyers are needed to assist the less fortunate.  In fact, there is a need for more judges that will serve with compassion while applying the law, like me.
