Q&A with Judge Judith L. Meyer

Question 1

How long have you been involved with this area of practice and what made you initially interested in this area?

I have been involved in Criminal Law since 1992 when I did a summer internship in the District Attorney’s Office during law school. From that moment forward I was hooked. Criminal Law was fun, fast paced, intellectually stimulating and exciting. I pursued a career with the District Attorney’s office upon graduating from law school. I remained with the District Attorney’s Office until taking the bench on Sept. 1, 2006, where I sit in Criminal Court. I never regretted my pursuit of Criminal Law.
