Former Family Court Judge Lisa Brown will make it official next Monday during an appearance on Face The Tribune radio show when she announces her intentions of running again for the seat she vacated in the 2008 elections.
Judge Brown, a graduate of Villanova University School of Law with a jurist doctorate, is now in private practice and is very much involved in community activities.
During her years on the bench she was involved with Child Haven as much as possible, because “it is very special to me.
The wonderful children there remind me why I became a Family Court judge and reaffirm my commitment,” she told show-host, Bob Beckett, prior to agreeing to the on-air interview.
Before becoming a judge, Lisa Brown worked as a deputy attorney general for the Division of Child and Family Services and Mental Health and Developmental Services where she believes she learned enough to help her to deal with family court issues and do a fair job on the bench.
“I am very committed to being a fair and unbiased judge and to helping our children and families in Clark County. It is an honor to serve as a Family Court judge. The court system is here to serve our children and families, and that has always been my goal,” Brown stated.
Presently Judge Brown has her own law office, practicing primarily family law, and is a member of the National Association of Counsel for Children.
She is a member of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges and member of the National Association of Counsel for Children.
“I also have my own office, practicing primarily in family law,” she told Beckett, who noticed her many prestigous affiliations listed in Wikipedia.
Brown says she wants to get back on the bench and try to help fix any wrongs there may be in family court at the present time.
She’s hoping to be able to leave all the bad publicity that has ensued from family court in the past, where she hopes it will stay, for the better of those in the system now — either during a divorce, a custody case or issues involving child
support, all of which are plaguing the courts nowadays.
After seriously studying all pros and cons of the race, she finally decided to announce her candidature for family court judge during a live interview with Bob Beckett on Face The Tribune.
She is well aware that she has strong opposition from the incumbent, Gail Nathan, because she has hired Dave Thomas as a campaign manager, someone who has made people believe that he can “elect anyone.”
Lisa Brown knows she will have to work hard if she is going to win.
During her time on the family court bench, Lisa Brown had many law enforcement organizations endorsing her candidacy; among those endorsements were those from Nevada Conference of Police and Sheriffs; Las Vegas Police Protective Association; Nevada State AFL-CIO; Southern Nevada Central Labor Council; and State Peace Officers Association. She hopes to be able get those endorsements once again.
