Hon. Chad W. Firetag is a judge of the Superior Court of Riverside County in California. He was appointed by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown on July 16, 2015.

His pet peeve is when people say, “Just one more thing…for the record.”

While attending Arlington High School in Riverside, he was captain of the school’s mock trial team when the team won the national championship in 1994.

The Angels is his favorite sports team.
