Biography

The Hon. Thomas P. Anderle is a judge for the Santa Barbara County Superior Court in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Pete Wilson in 1997. He filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Ronald C. Stevens (Ret.).

Judge Anderle attended the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor on a scholarship service commitment with the U.S. Navy. After graduating with his B.A. in 1956, Anderle fulfilled his three-year service commitment by serving as an officer on a Navy destroyer in the Pacific. At the time of his departure from the Navy, Anderle had reached the rank of lieutenant junior grade. After fulfilling his commitment to the Navy, Anderle went on to pursue his law degree. He graduated from Loyola Law School with his LL.B. in 1964.

After law school, Anderle served a clerkship with the Hon. Justice John J. Ford with the California Court of Appeal for the Second District in 1965. Upon completing his clerkship, Anderle joined the Santa Barbara County Counsel's Office, where he worked as a deputy county counsel for three years.

He left the public sector at that time, to enter into private practice. He first joined the erstwhile Goux and Romasanta as an associate in 1968. He would later become a named partner at Goux, Romasanta, and Anderle, where he would practice water, family, and education law. Ten years later, Anderle branched out on his own, entering into solo practice in 1978. He would remain in that capacity until his call to the bench in 1997.

While on the bench, Judge Anderle has served as a Presiding Judge for the Appellate Department. His assignments have included civil, probate, and family law cases.

His memberships have included the Santa Barbara County Board of Education, and past-president of the Santa Barbara County Bar Association, and the Legal Aid Foundation.

He received the Richard Goldman Hero of Justice Award from the Legal Aid Foundation in 2007 and the inaugural Thomas P. Anderle Award for Judicial Excellence from the Santa Barbara County Bar Association in 2015.

Judge Anderle hails from Port Huron, Michigan and has a twin brother, John.

Away from the bench, Judge Anderle enjoys dancing with his dance partner and wife, June, whom he married in 1960.
