Judge McCool has spent almost his entire legal career in public service.
“My nearly three decades of legal experience as a lawyer, prosecutor, and judge have reinforced my great reverence for the rule of law. Before taking the bench, I had twenty-five years of experience in the trial courts of this state, primarily as a prosecutor upholding the rule of law.”
“As a prosecutor and judge, I have never been swayed by power or social status, but have done my best to ensure the law was applied fairly and consistently. The Supreme Court is not the place for on-the-job training; I have the practical trial experience and the appellate judicial experience that is needed on our Supreme Court.”
