Retired Judge Catherine Brunson
Palm Beach County's First Black Female Circuit Court Judge
Judge Brunson graduated from The Florida State University College of Law in December of 1974, where she was the first black female student to graduate from the law school. She was admitted to practice law in Florida on May 22, 1975. After starting her career as an Assistant Public Defender and attorney for the State Retirement Commission, Judge Brunson moved to Palm Beach County in June of 1976 and began working at the Law Offices of Thomas Montgomery. In 1977, she became the first black attorney hired by the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office. Thereafter, in February of 1984, she became the first black female attorney to open a private practice in Palm Beach County. On August 10, 1994, she became the first black female to be appointed as a Circuit Court Judge in Palm Beach County.
Cost is $10 for FMCBA Members; $15 for non-members, and free to the Judiciary.
Per Judge Brunson's request, in lieu of gifts, please donate to Florida Rural Legal Services or Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.
