Sonoma County Superior Court, Department Courtroom 17

Biography

The Hon. Arthur A. Wick is a judge for the Superior Court of Sonoma County in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006, filling a vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Robert Dale.

Wick earned a B.S. from California State University, Long Beach in 1976. He then completed a J.D. from Northrop University School of Law in 1980.

Prior to his appointment to the bench, Wick served as a senior associate and general counsel with School and College Legal Services, an organization dedicated to providing legal services to various school districts in Sonoma County and throughout the State of California. Before that, he worked as a partner and an associate in two private sector law firms.

Wick successfully spearheaded the campaign to incorporate Windsor, California in 1992. He was also instrumental in the campaigns to institutionalize the Windsor Unified School District and to pass the nearly $30 million bond for the construction of Windsor High School.
