Biography

The Hon. Tamara L. Wood is a judge for the Superior Court of Shasta County in California. She was appointed to the bench by former Governor Jerry Brown in 2016, filling a vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Bradley Boeckman.

She began her legal career as a deputy district attorney in the Office of the District Attorney of Shasta County in 1997.

The following year, she left the public sector and joined Maire and Beasley as an associate. She practiced there for the next thirteen years, eventually rising to partner in 2004. Then, in 2010, she became an associate at Reiner, Simpson, and Slaughter. She quickly became a named partner in 2011.

Wood joined the Superior Court of Shasta County as its general counsel in 2013. The following year, she was appointed as its court commissioner, a position she held until her appointment to the bench.
