Suzanne Reynolds for NC Supreme Court

Suzanne Reynolds, a law Professor at Wake Forest University, is considered to be North Carolina's premier expert on family law. That's the persepctive and experience she plans to bring to the North Carolina Supreme Court.

She'll be running for the seat currently occupied by Robert Edmunds Jr.

Currently Professor Reynolds teaches contracts, professional responsibility, and family law. Her major publication is a three-volume treatise, Lee's North Carolina Family Law, published by LexisNexis, in which she re-wrote the work that has been recognized as the authoritative commentary in the field.

She has taught family law for the BarBri Bar Review course since 1994.

In 1998, for its work with DVAC, the ABA awarded the Forsyth County Bar Association the Harrison Tweed award for providing access to legal services. Professor Reynolds won the Governor's Distinguished Woman of North Carolina for Education in 1998, the Gwyneth B.

Please look at Suzanne Reynolds speech, people...

sometimes if you post a comment to your own post it will draw attention to it by appearing in the new comments bar...

Always a good idea to post your own comment

I try to do it every time, but often I get distracted and forget. I appreciated the video . . . and it would be awesome to have a family law specialist among our Supremes.

Thanks for posting this. Recommended!

The PREEMINENT Family Law Specialist

And since the NC Supreme Court is the highest review body in the state, I think we should expect it to be stocked with Minds like hers...

One of my favorite professors ever

She's outstanding. Really outstanding.

Bob edmunds is going to have to work his butt off to beat Suzanne.

Republican Judge DWI Doug Rap sheet here! IMPEACH DWI DOUG NOW!

Thanks, Jerimee

Max the Dog had something to say about that*Anglico

Jerirmee, You can visit the Judge DWI rap sheet here

and at the Breaking News section on the site...

The Judge was bragging last week that he had no oppostion in his race. I think his worst nightmare has come true since a battle tested Republican corrupted Hunter has step into his turf and will kick his DWI butt back to Art Pope Headquarters.

Impeach the Republican Judge DWI Doug Now!

Cover Up, Cover Up! by the DWI Republican Judge Doug!

Y'all heard what Doug McCullough said about this race right?*Jerimee

Jerimee! DWI Doug is in deep Republican John Hood Art Pope conspiracy theory

The above video that you have refer to has disappear into a coverup by the Judge yesterday. Like most political criminals, it's the coverup that gets you into trouble with the law. The judge buddies are claiming the video is copyrighted and therefore can't be use against him for his remarks to the public.....Boy is he going to be suprise to find out that copyright law does not cover a criminal defense.

Thank God.

That should be an interesting primary.

I hate it that I couldn't make that meeting.

Those Richmond Dems do it up right.

Thanks. Recommended.

Wow. She hit that out of the park!

That's the best Judicial campaign speech I've ever heard. Okay, so I've only heard a few, but THAT was seriously a great speech.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

I love her smile...*sigh*

I'm sorry. That has no bearing on anything. But seriously: best smile in NC politics.

I respectfully disagree.

You're standing next to the best smile in NC politics in your avatar piccie. :)

I think we might both be sexists.

And the shame is epic.


I got over that shame a long time ago. You'll grow out of it. :)
