About me

Judy has lived in Arizona since 1972.  She was Valedictorian at Mesa High School before heading east to attend Smith College.  After graduating with a degree in Psychology she worked as an Adult Probation Officer for Maricopa County Adult Probation Department.  


Judy graduated from the University of Notre Dame School of Law in 1986 and returned to Phoenix to join the firm of Gallagher & Kennedy.  At the forefront of women's issues in law firms and gender bias affecting women lawyer's Judy forged many new trails as one of the first women partners at G&K.


Judy has three adult children and one grandchild.  Now that the nest is empty she spends her time with her two Bouviers, Maya and Moqi (often featured on the firm's Christmas cards).  They love to go camping with their human mom, exploring northern Arizona wilderness in her travel trailer.

  • Nicole Dawn Marie Siqueiros

    I usually do not endorse attorneys in my same area of law, but Judy is the exception. She is intelligent, aggressive, caring and has a way with her clients. I believe she is one of the best family law attorneys in the valley, and I enjoy having cases with her. I highly recommend her.
