Fighting for Fairness, Families, and the Future

“Savin’s repulation as a fair and hardworking mediator in difficult custody cases, and her earlier experience representing indigent clients, suggest that she will be an especially valuable addition to the Family Division, where she hopes to spend her entire judicial tenure…we believe LORIE SAVIN is primary voters’ best choice for Oakland’s busy circuit court.” – Detroit Free Press, August 2, 2020

Please vote on November 3, 2020.

When you talk to Lorie, you know that she will treat your family as if it were her own because she is genuine and recognizes that we all want the same thing – to be able to provide for our family and give our children the childhood they deserve, paving their path to a bright future. 

For more than 25 years, Lorie has fought for families, children’s futures, and fairness in the court system. Her journey included work at legal aid, a non-profit organization, a Fortune 100 company, a small law firm, and the Oakland County Circuit Court’s Family Division. Now, she wants to bring her compassion, experience, and strong work ethic to the bench as your next Oakland County Circuit Court Judge.

She is a published author and speaker for the State Bar of Michigan, Michigan Judicial Institute, Oakland County Bar Association, and Referees Association of Michigan. Lorie is the longest serving member of the State Bar of Michigan’s Judicial Ethics Committee, having been appointed in 2009.

Lorie graduated from the University of Michigan and Wayne State University Law School. She is grateful to the public educators where she grew up, in Oak Park and Southfield, that set her on this path of opportunity to help others even though she came from a family of modest means.

Lorie and her husband, Adam Larky, raise their two daughters in West Bloomfield. Lorie has been involved in many community organizations including serving as PTO Treasurer and Diversity Committee Chair for several years at her children’s school, volunteering with Temple Israel and youth soccer programs, and supporting many other organizations which benefit children and those in need in the community.
