I was on the bench for 21 years and was one of the founders of the drug treatment court movement. I presided over a drug court as well as jury trials, preliminary hearings, the law and motion calendar and other professional assignments. I've published in Principles of Addiction Medicine, Journal of Maintenance in the Addictions, Substance Use and Misuse and a variety of legal publications. I've done presentations internationally and continue to write, teach, speak and train in my retirement. I recently founded a new business, Justice Speakers Institute,LLC., an international speakers bureau on justice issues.
