My name is Sommer Tolley and I want to personally endorse Carl Lamb for Monroe County judge. I endorse Carl for many reasons but to name a few Carl has strong moral values to always stand up for what is right, his charity work and his military background achievements are beyond amazing. Carl has strong ties to Monroe County and I know he will always do what is in the best interest of the Monroe County citizens. Carl became a friend of mine through his daughter, Barbie, we attended high school together. Carl has been a blessing to my family. One instance when he went above and beyond was when I had a personal battle with a car company not wanting to do what was right after selling me an unsafe car he personally called me to walk me through what I needed to know to win my case. There was no benefit for Carl to help me in this matter other than to help out a friend in need of expert advice. Thanks to Carl Lambs expert advice, I was able to win my case. In times like today, I can’t imagine having a more qualified expert to be a sitting judge for Monroe County than Carl Lamb. I believe his heart lead him to reach out to me that day and I know his heart will lead him to be the best Judge for all citizens in Monroe County! Sommer Tolley, Former resident of Community now lives in Arizona.

It has been my honor to have known Carl Lamb for the last 10 years. Carl and I first met as a Lawyer/Client relationship after I had been unjustly treated by the court system during a divorce settlement. I had pretty much given up on seeing my children due to the fact that the courts would not uphold the agreements in my divorce decree. After an extended period of time without seeing my youngest Son I had all but given up. There was a situation involving my Son at his school that was brought to my attention by his teacher. After that happened I contacted Carl about this situation and discussed with him how I had been treated by the court and particularly the Judge in my case. I was immediately impressed with Carl’s compassion about my situation, he assured me that he could help. During the time it took to get custody of my Son Carl showed concern for me and for my Son. He made it clear several times that he would do all he could to help and he did. It was during this time that Carl had gained my complete and total trust in his concern and abilities as a lawyer. During our court visit it was very apparent that Carl was comfortable in his role as an Attorney and his familiarization of the law. His demeanor in court was impressive as well as the apparent respect from the Judge towards him proved he was a respected Lawyer in our community. Carl’s expertise in the court system gained me a life with my Son and a friendship with Carl and his wife Angie. He proved his concern and friendship when he and Angie took time to come to my Son’s graduation party being there as a friend. That meant a lot to me and proves that Carl is a man well deserving a position as Judge in our community I have no doubt that as a Judge Carl Lamb would be fair and honest, I can honestly say from my experience our judicial system would benefit from Carl Lamb as being a Judge.

“I first met Carl Lamb over 30 years ago. While working with Carl early in his career, I witnessed his already broad knowledge and expertise in law and in life. He invests in his clients’ needs without delay and dedicates time to his staff. He gave me the opportunity to learn and helped me continue my career as a legal secretary. I believe Carl will carry that same dedication and desire to help others, with a fair mind and commitment to justice, in serving the community as Judge.” Denise Thurman
