After spending 20 years as a lawyer, Sheri Raphaelson of Tierra Amarilla, said she felt honored to be appointed to the position of First District Judge by Gov. Richardson.
“All I have to worry about is the law,” she said.
Raphaelson spoke to the Los Alamos Democratic Party Central Committee on Thursday about her career before her appointment in March and her career since.
Before the appointment, Raphaelson had her own one-woman law firm in Española, as a criminal defense lawyer.
