Paid for by the CTE Armand Velardo for Macomb County Circuit Court 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 Circuit Court Judge. I am a lifelong resident of Macomb County and currently
reside with my spouse and one of my two adult children in Shelby Township. I am
a proud American with an Italian heritage.
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 in 1983 at an international
accounting firm where I became a Certified Public Accountant. I began practicing
law in 1985 at a law firm in Detroit that, at the time, was the largest law firm
in Michigan. I have spent the past 14 years of my career practicing law at Ruggirello,
Velardo, Novara & Ver Beek, 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 Circuit 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 disputes brought before the Circuit
I am dedicated, experienced, knowledgeable, compassionate, and reasonable. I am
ready to serve the residents of Macomb County as a Circuit Court Judge.
