West Bloomfield Twp, MI – Lori Savin is running for Judge of the 6th Circuit Court in Oakland County. She is running against Victoria Valentine for this nonpartisan position.

When asked why people should vote for her, Savin said “I am the candidate that has family law experience. In fact family law and juvenile law is what I’ve practiced my entire 20 year career. For the past 13 years I’ve been a hearing officer in Oakland County’s Family Division where I do a lot of the same tasks that judges do on a day to day basis. So I conduct hearings. I take evidence and witnesses and then have to apply the law to their specific facts of the case, making a recommendation that is best suited for that families’ needs.

Additionally I spend part of my week over at the courthouse at motion call, where I help to try and resolve all sorts of issues involved in family court cases… so I really do have a broad range of experience both in juvenile court and what we call domestic relations, that’s families that are separating…. I think that’s why the major news outlets that have made endorsements have endorsed me, which is the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News and I got the support of Between the Lines which I’m really excited about.

In her interview with oc115, Saving talked about her 20 year law career which started in Legal Aid.  She also volunteered in a shelter for women in domestic violence situations, and has been involved in her children’s’ schools.
