Please read Jeanette’s Judicial Philosophy below.

“As a lawyer, I understand the importance of our founding principles and the unique role of the courts,” Jeanette explained. “And, as a mom, I have a special motivation to ensure the law is fairly, justly and consistently applied. I’d be honored to have your support in becoming a Supreme Court Justice for the great state of North Carolina. -Jeanette Doran

Jeanette’s Judicial Philosophy:

Jeanette believes the constitution is the cornerstone of all law. She believes in judicial restraint and in enforcing statutes as written. Throughout her career, she has focused on state and federal constitutional issues. Her experience at the trial and appellate level in state and federal courts shows a strong commitment to the rule of law.

Believing that policy changes should come from the people, not activist judges, Jeanette has traveled the state sharing her love of the North Carolina and United States Constitutions with civic and grassroots groups. Known in conservative circles for her explanation of the hidden taxes and new bureaucracies created by Obamacare, Jeanette has earned a reputation for understanding even the most complex law but not forgetting the fundamentals of both the state and federal constitutions.

 

BIOGRAPHY

nette Kathleen Doran was born to Barbara and Michael Doran. Her father, a retired police officer with nearly 35 years of experience, and her mother, a homemaker turned working mom, raised Jeanette and her brothers and sister with a deep respect for hard work.  Just two years after graduating from high school and starting college, Jeanette earned her B.A. degree from Auburn University. After college, she moved to Fayetteville and commuted from her home at Ft. Bragg when she began law school at Campbell University. She earned her law degree with honors and served as research editor of the law review while in school.

Jeanette started her career as a federal law clerk in the Middle District of North Carolina. She then went to work in the appeals section of the Federal Public Defender as the Research and Writing Attorney where her work required her to appear before the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. In 2004, Jeanette joined the staff of the School of Government at UNC-Chapel Hill. Then, in 2005, she became staff attorney at the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law (NCICL), eventually becoming the Institute’s Executive Director in 2011 when Justice Bob Orr left NCICL for private practice. In December 2013, Jeanette was appointed by the Governor to serve as Chairperson of the newly established Board of Review. In her current position, Jeanette hears higher authority appeals of unemployment insurance and related tax claims from across North Carolina.

At the Institute for Constitutional Law, Jeanette focused on state and federal constitutional issues. She worked at the trial and appellate level in state and federal courts to enforce constitutional limitations on government, protect liberty and promote freedom. She represented ordinary taxpayers in their fight to enforce constitutional restrictions on government spending and public debt. Her clients included everyday citizens, parents, charter schools, and nonprofit organizations.  She worked for a wide range of North Carolinians, from the well-known to the little guys: state legislators, property owners, school children, a member of the Council of State and even a man arrested for working at a food cart selling hot dogs to support his family! Representing these folks, Jeanette took on corporate giants and powerful politicians.

Believing that policy changes should come from the people, not activist judges, Jeanette has traveled the state sharing her love of the North Carolina and United States Constitutions with civic and grassroots groups. She has earned a reputation for understanding complex laws but never forgetting the fundamentals of both the state and federal constitutions.

Jeanette is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, various US District Courts, and all North Carolina state courts. She is active in the North Carolina Bar Association. She has served on the Appellate Rules Committee since 2006 and, in 2012, she was elected to the Section Council for the Constitutional Rights and Responsibilities Section.  Also in 2012, she was appointed by the NC House of Representatives to the Rules Review Commission, which reviews proposed regulations and rules from state agencies and commissions to ensure the regulations are authorized by statute and otherwise conform to the Administrative Procedures Act. Jeanette is a frequent speaker at Continuing Legal Education Programs for attorneys and has published two scholarly law review articles. A firm believer in civic education, Jeanette also speaks with civic and fraternal organizations and makes presentations at schools.

Jeanette has lived in the Triangle Region of North Carolina since 1997. Her home is in Raleigh with her husband, daughters and the family dog, Max. She is active in her church and at her daughters’ school.
