“Achieving Justice” with Magistrate Amber Crowe, candidate for the Ninth District Court of Appeals
Magistrate Amber Crowe of the Summit County Juvenile Court is no stranger to hard work and has never backed down from a challenge, especially when it involves helping young people in her community.
In this latest installment of Justice Jennifer Brunner’s “Achieving Justice” video series, Magistrate Crowe reflects on working full-time during law school, her diverse experience as an attorney in both the public and private sectors, and her passion for working with families in service to her community.
Magistrate Crowe was appointed magistrate to the Summit County Juvenile Court in 2021 and is running for election as judge of the Ninth District Court of Appeals in the upcoming November election. She previously served as magistrate and staff attorney of the Akron Municipal Court.
When Magistrate Crowe completed law school, her work brought out in her a love for community service and helping families. She assisted Judge Linda Tucci Teodosio with her Family Resource Center—a truancy, mediation, and diversion program for the Summit County Juvenile Court. Over the years, Magistrate Crowe also pursued her passion for helping young people and families while in private practice, litigating cases and working as a guardian ad litem for children who had been adjudicated abused, neglected, and dependent in Summit County. In that line of work, she became well-acquainted with Judge Nicole Walker during the COVID-19 pandemic and was appointed as a magistrate in 2021.
Magistrate Crowe was born, raised and currently resides in Summit County. She is a graduate of Manchester High School and received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Pre-Law from the University of Akron in 2010. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of Akron School of Law in December of 2013. She was named to the Greater Akron Chamber’s “30 For The Future” Class for 2021.
Justice Brunner started "Achieving Justice" in 2020 during her campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court. The program educates individuals about Ohio's judicial system and the judges and candidates for judge who serve and wish to serve their state and community. A new Achieving Justice interview is to be released each week. All of the 2022 Achieving Justice interviews can be found here: https://www.justicebrunner.com/news.
“Serving the people and the cause of justice is one of the most important callings in our democratic system,” Justice Brunner said. “I believe that the more information the public has about the courts, their judges, and judicial candidates, the stronger our system is.”
Justice Brunner is a candidate for Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court in 2022.
