Conservatives Move To Unseat SD Superior Court Judges

The reason for Craig Candelore's rating on San Diego County Bar Association is because he has No experience as a litigator,a litigator is a trial lawyer. (http://radio-weblogs.com/0110436/2003...)
The guy is a Family Law attorney - he has not been a trial lawyer and does not have proper experience to be a judge.

As a Legal Advocate I have to comment on this issue. I give counsel to female victims of domestic violence in my current work - sadly, many of their perpetrators are defended at the Mens Legal Center. On top of that, the Mens Legal Center was listed on the Domestic Violence Resource Sheet for San Diego County. Every organization on the sheet is a Non-Profit organization focused on the public interest to help people in need of services. Mens Legal Center is a For-Profit company that used their political branch - California Men's Center - a non-profit, as a front for "community service" to get onto this list. Dishonest.

Interestingly Mens Legal Center's site (as of 5/9/10) only has 5 testimonies from women out of 30 total - the rest are men. Don't be fooled, Men's Legal is a firm dedicated to men that represents men. Why would Candelore choose "MEN'S" Legal Center if he intended to represent both men and women fairly? A biased firm makes for a biased judge.

"allancan" is Craig Candelore's son. Craig also changed "Men's Legal Center" to "a family law firm" on his campaign website.

shortened:

"Accountability: The only person Craig Candelore/Men's Legal Center listens to his himself. Ask the clients or staff.

Boundaries: Simply put: he doesn't have them.

Common sense: would be to pick anyone but this group. You are who you spend time with."
