PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Pulaski County attorney Mike Reif announced his candidacy for the Pulaski and Perry County Circuit Court, 13th Division Monday.
Judge Collins Kilgore will retire soon, leaving the position open, and the cases in the this position will be centered on civil, domestic and probate law.
According to the Henry Law Firm, Reif has practiced 29 years with the Little Rock law firm Dover, Dixon, Horne, PLLC.
"I'm running because I see children of all ages being torn apart emotionally by bitter divorce battles. I've seen cases where parents fighting over custody don't take the time to stop and look at the long term damage they're causing," Reif said.
Reif lives in Little Rock with Ellen, his wife of 24 years and their three children. The nonpartisan judicial election will take place on May 20, 2014.
