Charles E. Wilson II of East Palo Alto, a deputy district attorney at the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, is one of three new judges joining the bench at Santa Clara County Superior Court, the county has announced.
"We look forward to welcoming Chris, Josh and Charles to our Bench," Presiding Judge Brian C. Walsh stated in a press release. "All three have been great lawyers in their fields and are great people. We are pleased that these newest additions to our Court have strong connections with our county."
Wilson, 39, decided to be sworn in yesterday afternoon, the county said. He's served as a deputy district attorney in Alameda County since 2007. Prior to that, he was a litigation associate at Gordon and Rees LLP in San Francisco from 2003 to 2007 and at Phillips Spallas and Fotouhi in 2003. Wilson earned a juris doctor degree from the University of San Francisco's School of Law, a master's in business administration from the University of San Francisco School of Management and a bachelor's degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is taking the seat on the bench left empty by retired Judge Diane M. Northway.
