Judy Arrington graduated from Villa Julie College, and spent the next thirty-eight years at the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office. In the early years, she began working in the Circuit Court Victim/Witness Unit, and later moved District Court. After becoming a paralegal in 1995, she supervised an all-volunteer Domestic Violence Advocate group until a District Court Victim Witness Unit was implemented.
She transferred to the Circuit Division as a paralegal in 2007 to prep felony cases. Her love of the criminal justice arena led her to a great rapport with many agencies on the local, state, and federal levels. She loved the challenge of putting cases together for the prosecutors.
Retiring in March 2017, she happily accepted the administrative position with MSAA-still meeting great people and still working in criminal justice.
While she loves her work, her favorite job is being a grandmother.
