Choosing a probate judge is not a popularity contest. It is a position that requires the best skilled person to do the job. That person needs to be qualified in order to make decisions that can greatly impact a person or alter a family’s life. A judge must be honest, fair, and understanding when dealing with a family’s emotions. He must be able to empathize with members of a family and still be able carry out his duties as a judge while carefully guiding the family through the tenets of a will. Al Ippolito is perfectly suited for the job of probate judge. He already does this as a lawyer and will continue to do so as judge of probate.
