Juanita Bocanegra is currently seeking election to the vacant 58th District Court Judge seat in Ottawa County that is being created by the retirement of Judge Susan Jonas at the end of this year.  With the limitation on personal visits, fundraising gatherings and the traditional canvassing has become a significant challenge.  Therefore, your personal involvement in helping Juanita’s campaign is crucial.

Let me share Juanita's story with you and why I wholeheartedly support and endorse her candidacy. Juanita arrived in Michigan with her parents as migrant farm workers. From a very young age, Juanita worked in the fields alongside her parents until she graduated from West Ottawa High School and enrolled in the Honors Program at Grand Valley State University. She obtained employment as a legal assistant at Hann Persinger, PC, while also working at Old Kent Bank (now Fifth Third Bank). In 2004, Juanita started attending law school on the weekends and weeknights while working both jobs and raising a young family with her husband, Jose. She earned her Juris Doctorate Degree from Thomas Cooley Law School and accepted a position at Rhoades McKee. In 2011, she joined the Ottawa County Prosecutor’s Office where she currently serves as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. Juanita has experience handling both civil and criminal cases, varying from misdemeanors up to and including murder trials. She places a great value on integrity and understands the importance of creating and maintaining professional working relationships with all court personnel, law enforcement officers, agencies, and other attorneys. 

Juanita is committed to giving back to her community by providing leadership in numerous Boards. Juanita’s diverse background, extensive legal experience and commitment to integrity make her the best fit to be our next 58th District Court Judge.

 

“My balanced experience as an attorney in civil litigation, business law, family law, and criminal prosecution allows me to bring the temperament and attributes necessary to serve the public from the 58th District Court bench. I am fair, forthright, honest and courteous with everyone I work with, from the public to the bar association and law enforcement officers, to the judges and supporting members. I will listen to all the facts in cases that may be presented in front of me and apply the law to render impartial and unbiased decisions for all concerned parties.” - Juanita F. Bocanegra

On Dec 4, 2019, Juanita F. Bocanegra announced her candidacy in the 2020 election for the 58th District Court Judge. She is seeking to fill the seat that will be left open by Judge Susan A. Jonas, who is retiring at the end of her current term.

Since March 2011, Juanita F. Bocanegra has served as an Assistant Prosecutor in Ottawa County and has vigilantly sought and obtained convictions in all types of cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, including armed robbery and homicide.
