Biography

The Hon. Ginger E. Garrett is a judge for the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo County in California. She was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2005, filling a vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Christopher G. Money.

Garrett earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama. She then continued her studies at the University of Alabama School of Law, where she completed a J.D.

She began her legal career as an attorney in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 1978. She first worked as a staff attorney for Alabama Legal Aid. Two years later, she accepted a position as managing attorney for the Legal Services Corporation of Tuscaloosa. Then, in 1982, she started her own private practice, where she handled cases for the next decade.

Garrett relocated to the Central Coast of California in 1993. She practiced as a sole practitioner in her own family and juvenile law practice until 2002, at which time she was selected to serve as a family law court commissioner for the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo County. She held that position until her appointment to the bench.

Garrett has served as the Director of the Tuscaloosa Legal Aid Society. She has also been an advocate of San Luis Obispo County’s Behavioral Health Treatment Court and the Adult Treatment Collaborative Court.

She is registered as a Democrat.
