It wasn’t very long after I took my oath of office and started working as a rookie circuit judge in Greene County when I met and began to get to know Jim Corbett. He tried a lot of cases in front of me, and I quickly became a fan of the sometimes rare combination of pleasant demeanor, professional acumen, and just downright hard work that characterized Jim as he handled those cases on behalf of his clients. I’m sure that they didn’t need me to tell them that they had picked a great advocate. The other thing I admired is that he was also well-respected by his adversaries. I have no doubt that his family has been truly blessed by having him as a role model and companion, and I wanted to let you know that I am also going to miss him terribly.
