Family Presiding Judge


Judge Suzanne E. Cohen's family moved a bit when she was growing up, but for the most part she was raised outside Detroit. Michigan. She left the Midwest to attend Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg, VA. After college she worked in the insurance industry but didn't really feel fulfilled. Helping people is what makes her tick. Her mom suggested that since she liked to argue, perhaps she should go to law school. That decision turned out to be one of the best she ever made. Judge Cohen was a night student at Golden Gate University School of Law while she worked for Aetna. Once she started law school she knew that she wanted to be a prosecutor. She made the decision that she would go wherever she got a job. That determination ended her up in Blythe. CA She was the prosecutor there for two years before joining the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in January 2000.

Judge Cohen's career as a prosecutor both in Maricopa County and Riverside County, CA was an incredibly rewarding experience and one she will cherish forever.
