About Judge Kaddo

Judge James A. Kaddo has  served as Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court for the last 25 years.

After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley and having served in and been honorably discharged from the United States Army, Judge Kaddo received his Juris Doctor from the Gould School of Law at the University of Southern California.

He began his legal career  in private practice as a partner for several law firms. Eventually  branching out on his own, he opened "The Law Offices of James A. Kaddo", a full-service general law practice specializing in civil and criminal trials, real estate development and syndications. As an attorney, Kaddo was a steadfast advocate for his clients.

Upon his appointment to the Los Angeles Municipal Court, he closed the doors on his private practice and turned his focus to his new role as judge. Judge Kaddo has continued to serve the County of Los Angeles with honor, fairness and judicial integrity as both a Municipal and Superior Court Judge.

Judge James A. Kaddo is the embodiment of the American dream. After emigrating from Lebanon as a young teenager, he took advantage of all his new country had to offer, while still embracing the rich legacy of his homeland. Today, he refers to himself as a proud Lebanese-American. Judge Kaddo has the distinction of being the only Lebanese-born judge in America and has been an active member of the Lebanese-American and Armenian-American communities in Los Angeles for decades.

Judge Kaddo has been a resident of Los Angeles since arriving in America. He has been married for 56 years and is the proud father of 4 daughters and the doting grandfather of five. As a veteran of the United States Army, he understands the value of public service and has served the county selflessly and with honor for more than a quarter-century.
