Little Rock attorney Casey Tucker announces candidacy for Circuit Court Judge
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Little Rock attorney Casey Tucker announced today her candidacy for the Circuit Court Judge position that will be vacated by Judge Chris Piazza, 2nd Division, who recently announced his decision to retire.
“Today I am acting upon the encouragement I began receiving soon after Judge Piazza made his intention to retire clear, but I first extend my sincerest appreciation to Judge Piazza for his fairness and thoroughness on the bench,” said Tucker.
“As judge, I pledge to listen to the people in our community. I believe that an effective justice system must be both accountable and innovative.”
“As judge, I will always put the interests of children first and foremost in any decision, whether it is juvenile justice, child custody, divorce, or grandparent visitation rights,” said Tucker.
“Our justice system impacts all aspects of our community. If we don’t look for tangible ways to streamline and speed up our justice system, then we face a real risk of wasting valuable resources on unresolved problems,” says Tucker.
“Casey’s hard work and leadership style is fair and no nonsense. She is a hard worker who is always willing to help, even as she manages family, church leadership and her legal practice,” said Little Rock resident Dianne Burnett.
Tucker graduated from the University of Arkansas law school and has been in private practice for 22 years, representing hundreds of clients on the same types of cases presently assigned to the 2nd Division.
Casey Tucker lives in Little Rock with her husband Mike of 25 years and their two children. The nonpartisan judicial election will take place on March 3, 2020.
