Forbes is deeply knowledgeable about appellate law and practice; active in volunteer work in the legal profession; and engaged in the community, serving on the board of the Centers for Families and Children since 2008 and on the affiliated Circle Health (former Free Clinic) board since 2017.

She displays the calm, open, respectful demeanor needed in a judge.

Ohio appellate judges will make about $163,000 this year, based on a judicial salary chart at the Ohio Supreme Court.
