Paid for by Armand Velardo for Probate Judge
65 Southbound Gratiot Avenue
Mount Clemens, Michigan 48043-5545
Welcome to my website, and thank you for your interest in my campaign for Macomb
County Probate Court Judge. I am a lifelong resident of Macomb County and currently
reside with my spouse in Shelby Township.
I attended Wayne State University where I obtained a Business Degree, a Law Degree,
and a Masters of Laws in Taxation. I started my career at an international accounting
firm where I became a Certified Public Accountant. I began practicing law at a law
firm in Detroit that, at the time, was the largest law firm in Michigan. I have spent
the past 19 years of my career practicing law at Ruggirello, Velardo, Novara, Burke
& Reizen, P.C., where I also serve as the Managing Partner.
Early in my career, the late Judge Lido V. Bucci impressed upon me that the attorneys
should be part of the solution and not the problem. I have always utilized this
advice in assisting my clients in solving their legal issues. If I am elected to
serve as a Macomb County Probate Court Judge, I will continue to utilize this advice,
along with incorporating my philosophy that the legal system should be consistent,
efficient, fair, and impartial when resolving family and individual issues brought
before the Probate Court.
I am dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, compassionate, and reasonable. I am
ready to serve the residents of Macomb County as a Probate Court Judge.
