Welcome to Judge Adrienne Nelson

June 2006
By Judge John Wittmayer, Multnomah County Circuit Court

In February, Governor Kulongoski appointed Adrienne Nelson as a Circuit Court Judge, to replace Judge Sidney Galton, who retired. Judge Nelson came to us from Portland State University, where she was the Director of the Student Mediation and Legal Services Office. Before that position, Judge Nelson was in private practice in Portland with the Bennett Hartman firm, and previously was a public defender.
