Biography

The Hon. Angel M. Bermudez is a judge for the Riverside County Superior Court in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007. He filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. B.J. Bjork (Ret.).

Bermudez is a registered Republican.

Judge Bermudez graduated with his B.A. in English literature, American literature, and American history from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1988. He went on to earn his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1991.

His first job after law school was as a deputy district attorney for the Riverside County District Attorney's Office, where he worked from 1991 to 2002.

He left the D.A.'s office in 2002 to start his own firm but would return to Riverside County the next year. After rejoining the D.A.'s office, Bermudez would rise to the rank of senior deputy district attorney and would remain in that position until his appointment to the Superior Court in 2007. During his tenure at the D.A.'s office, he would be assigned to the Homicide Unit.

For his work with the D.A.'s office, Bermudez received the Outstanding Achievement Award in 2000 and the Felony Prosecutor of the Year Award in 2005.

While on the bench, Judge Bermudez has presided over various assignments including family law, limited civil, unlawful detainers, criminal trials, and drug court.
