Menges says he believes in keeping down judiciary costs, but understands that a juvenile's truancy issue could be part of a "ripple effect" stemming from family crisis, including domestic violence, divorce, custody battles and home foreclosures.
He said, one issue could result in a family's needing to go before judges several times. 
"They are human beings with goals and dreams," he said. "I realize that they got problems and those problems need to be addressed on a human level." The 34-year attorney, said he wants to be a judge who is humble and empathetic.
