Kyle Hedrick For Circuit Court Judge - And Response (2)

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

I am writing to publicly offer my endorsement of Kyle Hedrick for Circuit Court Judge.  Kyle has already shown that he has the temperament needed for this seat.  He rose to the top during the governor’s selection process and anyone that has been around him can understand why. 

Selection of a judge should be done with several things in mind.  I have found Judge Hedrick to possess some of those very traits desirable in a judge.  He has restraint.  I have seen him remain calm, cool and collected when most people would feel the need to respond to accusations.  I’ve also seen him hold his tongue, when others around him might have been pointing out flaws in people’s character.  He is decisive, yet compassionate.   He is not haughty or boastful.  He is one of the most humble men I know. 

My family proudly endorses Kyle Hedrick for Circuit Court Judge.

I am very proud to stand up for Judge Hedrick.  I have been in the courtroom with him on the bench and I was so impressed.  He is one of the best judges I have seen in action.  When you walk into his courtroom you can feel the difference in the atmosphere.  He puts you at ease with his temperament. 

In my opinion there is no one better for judge.  When he makes a ruling he explains why he has ruled the way he did.

Please vote for Judge Hedrick to stay in office.

I am supporting Judge Kyle Hedrick to retain his position as judge of Division IV of the Circuit Court of Hamilton County. I have practiced family law in Chattanooga since 1979. 

I know that my clients and all people who come before the court need a judge with a balanced temperament, a willingness to listen to both sides, a professional demeanor and the legal knowledge to make decisions based upon applying the relevant facts to the applicable law. 

Of the two candidates, Judge Hedrick has those qualities in abundance and is the most qualified candidate for the position. 

Many times the most successful lawyers are the ones who do not drag their clients through multiple litigations and court appearances. Judge Hedrick’s career as an attorney demonstrated his ability to understand and successfully conclude complex cases. These abilities were recognized by the Judicial Selection Committee and the governor’s appointment. 

Please join me in voting for Judge Hedrick on May 1.
