Judge Ben Graves is receiving our strongest endorsement as he seeks the Circuit Judgeship for Place 1 in Lauderdale County. Ben Graves is the only candidate who has any judicial experience and boy does he have it. As Florence Municipal Judge, Graves has cleared over 30,000 cases since taking over from the late James Hall. Judge Graves listens to theft cases, DUIs, domestic violence cases, child endangerment, assaults and many other crimes that occur within the City of Florence. Florence Municipal Court is very crowded averaging over 200 cases per week and Ben Graves has done an amazing job of being popular with both law enforcement and the attorneys who practice before him. All of the attorneys and police officers we have spoken with talk about his even temperament, his ability to communicate and his understanding of how to apply the law to the facts of each case. The same cannot be said about his opponent.

After talking with Graves about his plans for his Circuit Judgeship, it is clear that he also has some great ideas to help children that have been exposed to the Court system and juveniles at risk of getting involved in the court system to some positive influences through the use and coordination of existing child services and willing volunteers. Graves says he “chose to run for this judgeship because it deals with children coming from broken homes and children who need guidance and positive influences.” Graves has a proven record of problem-solving as a judge and Shoals Insider invites everyone to look at some of the amazing stories of redemption and testimonials available on his Facebook Page. Judge Graves has a unique understanding and ability to motivate defendants and to push them in positive directions. We are excited to see what new ideas he brings to Circuit Court for Place 1 in Lauderdale County.

Judge Graves is vested in the community. He is a family man with young children and will be a great asset for all of Lauderdale County. Judge Graves is counted as one of the hardest working judges in our area who leaves no stone unturned to complete the task at hand. With these facts in mind, we wholeheartedly give our endorsement to Judge Ben Graves.
