Biography

The Hon. Judith S. Craddick (Ret.) was a judge on the Superior Court of Contra Costa County in California. She was appointed to the bench by former Governor Pete Wilson in January 1998. She was automatically re-elected in 2010 after running unopposed. Then, in 2018, she retired from the bench.

Craddick attended John F. Kennedy University College of Law in Pleasant Hill, California, where she received her J.D.

Prior to her appointment to the bench, Craddick managed Craddick, Candland & Conti, a private law firm based in Danville, California, with her husband. She continued to practice with the firm, even after her husband's passing in 1996.

After joining the Superior Court of Contra Costa County, Craddick established its post-conviction domestic violence calendar, which has reduced the recidivism rate among those who appeared in her courtroom.

Craddick is registered as a Republican.
