“No one should surrender control of their life to a judge unless they are unable to find a way to resolve their dispute on their own. There are cases where a judge needs to be the one to make the decision. It’s great to have that option. The rest of the time I’m trying to use my skill and influence to help people come to that decision on their own. I help them to evaluate what’s reasonable, what’s fair, and what’s most important to them.” — Frances Nolan
