For Municipal Court Judge
Arica has been a licensed attorney for over 20 years, is experienced and qualified, and has a unique sense of perspective. She believes that one of the primary issues with the Court System is a complete lack of understanding of court proceedings. As a Municipal Court Judge, Arica will bring a balanced and committed sense of judicial service to the citizens of Hamilton County.
Arica currently works as Felony Trial Counsel for the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office, primarily representing indigent individuals charged with felony crimes in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. She also represents clients charged with misdemeanors in the Hamilton County Municipal Court. She believes that a person’s access to effective and vigorous representation should not depend on their socioeconomic status. She has zealously defended her clients almost daily in the Hamilton County Courts for over 11 years.
