Hello! I have been a commercial litigator for 36 years and have tried numerous cases to judges and juries in addition to arguing thousands of motions.
I have been judging speech and debate competitions for five years.
I do not mind speed as long as there is clarity. If I cannot understand you, I cannot follow your arguments. I do like a road map to help me follow you.
I am fairly familiar with debate jargon, but not necessarily every specific term. I enjoy seeing clash in the debate, flowing your arguments all the way through, and weighing arguments. I want to see the impacts and links within your arguments.
I do not mind passionate debaters, but please be respectful toward your opponents.
I do not like and don't understand progressive arguments.
For Speech Events:
I enjoy creativity in content and expression in delivery. I like movement and vocal expression.
