Since taking office on the El Dorado County Superior Court, Judge Brooks has worked to improve operations by eliminating unnecessary, duplicative and expensive court appearances.  He helped implement a new, streamlined system for requesting necessary appearances directly through the Court’s website, rather than requiring a costly in-person appearance in Court.

Judge Brooks sees his role as a Judge to be the tireless and unswerving dedication to upholding the law and applying it fairly, without prejudice or preference.  He believes that our judicial system must provide a respectful, efficient, no-nonsense forum for the fair and equitable resolution of disputes.
