Veteran Denver County Court Judge Herbert Galchinsky has announced his retirement, and the Denver County Court Judicial Nomination Commission is accepting applications for Denver attorneys interested in succeeding him on the bench.
All attorneys licensed to practice in Colorado for at least five years and who are registered electors in Denver are eligible to apply for the judgeship. Application packages (consisting of one original application plus eight copies) must be received by the Denver County Court Presiding Judge’s Office at the City and County Building, 1437 Bannock St., Room 108, no later than Friday, August 13 at 5:00 p.m.
County court judges receive a provisional, two-year appointment by the governor, after which they are retained by voter approval every four years. The annual salary is $152,445.
Judge Galchinsky is affectionately nicknamed “Herbie the Love Judge” due to his popularity as a marriage official in his off hours. He has served as a county judge for 16 years.
