Clackamas pro tem judge takes permanent post in Portland
Angela Franco Lucero, a former pro tem judge in Clackamas County, is filling the vacancy created by Multnomah County Judge Kenneth R. Walker's recent retirement.
Lucero's appointment was effective immediately following Gov. Kate Brown's Aug. 12 announcement.
"For years, Angela Lucero has passionately served her community, while also maintaining a high-volume civil litigation practice," Brown said. "Angela's extensive practice experience, tireless work ethic and empathy for those who appear before her will serve her well as a trial court judge."
Lucero grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico. After graduating with a bachelor's degree from New Mexico State University, she earned a law degree from Lewis & Clark Law School.
Since law school, Lucero has represented individuals, insurance companies, and public bodies in a wide range of civil litigation matters. She currently is an attorney at Kranovich & Lucero, LCC.
In addition to her legal practice, Lucero has served as president of the Oregon Women Lawyers, and currently is on the boards of the Oregon Hispanic Bar Association and the Oregon State Bar Board of Bar Examiners. She has volunteered to help with Refugee Adjustment Day, DACA Renewal Day, and other access-to-justice efforts in her community. She received the Oregon Hispanic Bar Association's highest award, the Paul J. De Muniz Professionalism Award, earlier this year.
