Today we welcome Judge Thomas Cahraman who will have some interesting tales to tell about a judge's perspective of the courtroom.



Judge Tom Cahraman graduated Yucaipa High School in 1969, University of California Riverside in 1973, and Boalt Hall Law School in 1976.  He practiced law in Riverside from 1976 until 2001, when he was appointed to the bench.  


From 1976 to 1984 Judge Cahraman practiced law with LeMoyne Badger.  In 1984 he established his own office, and eventually hired an associate.  He handled a wide variety of cases, primarily in the civil arena, during his 25 years of law practice. 


Upon appointment Judge Cahraman was first assigned to the Perris courthouse, to handle criminal cases.  Over the years he has served in family law, general civil, and felony assignments.  In 2008 he was elected to serve as Presiding Judge, and served in that administrative capacity from 1/1/09 through the end of 2010. 


Commencing in January of 2011 Judge Cahraman has handled a probate calendar in Department 8.
