Biography

The Hon. Edward G. Weil is a judge for the Superior Court of Contra Costa County in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in September 2009. He was automatically re-elected in 2010 after running unopposed.

Weil received his B.A. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley. He then continued his studies at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, where he earned his J.D.

While attending law school, Weil worked as a law clerk for the National Housing Law Project in 1980. Then, after graduating, he accepted a position as a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He held this position for four years, eventually leaving to join the San Francisco Neighborhood Legal Assistance Foundation as a staff attorney.

Weil returned to the public sector in 1988. He served as a deputy attorney general in the Office of the Attorney General of California, eventually rising to supervising deputy attorney general in 2003. He held this position until his appointment to the bench.

An experienced skydiver with over 1,900 jumps completed, Weil has sometimes completed five jumps a day.

Weil is registered as a Democrat.
