Forbes is Endorsed by the Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com

Forbes is deeply knowledgeable about appellate law and practice; active in volunteer work in the legal profession; and engaged in the community, serving on the board of the Centers for Families and Children since 2008 and on the affiliated Circle Health (former Free Clinic) board since 2017.

She displays the calm, open, respectful demeanor needed in a judge. It’s also notable that Forbes -- who received four “Excellent” ratings and one “Good” from the five local bar associations in the Judge4Yourself judicial ratings coalition -- is willing to give up a lucrative private legal practice (and presumably take a pay cut) to seek the job. Ohio appellate judges will make about $163,000 this year, based on a judicial salary chart at the Ohio Supreme Court.
