Biography

The Hon. Warren C. Stracener is a judge for the Superior Court of El Dorado County in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in December 2010, filling a vacancy created by the conversion of a court commissioner position.

Stracener earned a B.A. from California State University, Long Beach as well as an M.A. in education from California State University, Sacramento. He then completed a J.D. from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.

He served as board counsel for the California Public Employment Relations Board from 1980 to 1991. For part of this time, he also served as an associate at the Law Offices of Biddle and Hamilton as well as staff counsel for the San Juan Unified School District. He then joined the California Department of Personnel Administration. He served there as an attorney, eventually rising to deputy chief counsel in 2004. He held that position until his appointment to the bench.

He is registered as a Republican.

Before beginning his legal career, Stracener spent eleven years as a high school teacher, eight of which were within the San Juan Unified School District.

His memberships have included the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of California, and the California Republican Assembly.
