Biography

The Hon. Shelleyanne W. L. Chang is a judge for the Sacramento County Superior Court in California. She was appointed to the bench in 2002 by former governor Gray Davis. She filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Harold Manson (Ret.).

Judge Chang graduated with her B.A. in international studies from the University of Washington in 1982. She went on to earn her J.D. from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 1985.

After graduating from law school, Chang joined the Office of the Chief Counsel for the Internal Revenue Service, where she initially served as a trial attorney before being named a senior trial attorney. During her time there, Chang represented the IRS in civil and criminal tax cases. She also served as a special assistant U.S. Attorney, during which time she represented the IRS in federal bankruptcy court. Then, in 1993, Chang joined the California Department of Justice's Office of the Attorney General, where she served as a deputy attorney general for the next six years. In 1999, she became the senior deputy legal affairs secretary for then-governor Gray Davis. During her three-year tenure there, she would be promoted to chief deputy legal affairs secretary to the governor. In that position, Chang advised state officers and government agencies on the matters of litigation and legislation involving government ethics and other legal matters. She was serving in that capacity at the time of her appointment to the Superior Court in 2003.

While on the bench, Judge Chang has presided over a general trial calendar and also serves as a rotation judge for the civil harassment restraining order calendar.

In her free time, Chang enjoys playing golf, reading, and baking.
