Judge Profile: Jaclyn Brown

Although Judge Jaclyn Brown was only appointed to the 17th Judicial District Court a year ago, she knew for a long time that she would one day become a judge.

The former complex commercial litigator said she remembers wanting to be a judicial officer since she first started thinking about law school.

“I love the law. It’s very rigid and at the same time malleable, and I’m fascinated how it all works together in our system,” she said. “… I often tend to define myself as coming to the center of a conflict and really seeing it from all angles. So, there was a piece of me that always wanted to come to the middle.”

Brown had a home as a litigator at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, where she worked for the entirety of her career as an attorney. Her experience included litigation in a wide range of areas including real estate and construction issues, eminent domain, contractual disputes and insurance.
