Ronda J. McKaig

(Sacramento, Ca) Ronda J. McKaig, 45, of Santa Paula, has been appointed to a judgeship in the Ventura County Superior Court. McKaig has served as an assistant county counsel and senior civil attorney at the Office of the Ventura County Counsel since 2014. She was counsel at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP from 2010 to 2014, where she was an associate from 2004 to 2010. McKaig was an associate at Clifford Chance LLP from 2002 to 2004 and at Brobeck LLP from 2001 to 2002. She earned a Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts degree from California Lutheran University.

“This is an incredible opportunity to serve,” shares McKaig, “They let me know on Wednesday and the press release came out on Friday. I submitted my application about a year ago and the timing was a bit of a surprise but very exciting.”

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced the appointment of 12 California superior court judges, which include: Two in Los Angeles County; one in Orange County; one in Placer County; two in Riverside County; one in San Bernardino County; one in San Diego County; one in San Francisco County; one in San Mateo County; one in Stanislaus County; and one in Ventura County.

McKaig shared that she transitioned from private practice to the county counsel’s office where she has been for the last four and half years. She explained that the transition from private practice to the county was a big change. “You go from working 60+ hours to more reasonable hours and go from representing multiple clients to one client and from representing commercial interests to government interests.”

In discussing why she applied for the judgeship, McKaig explains, “Surveying as a judge is one of the most meaningful and impactful ways to contribute to my community.”

Effective July 31, 2018, McKaig will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Frederick H. Bysshe. McKaig is registered without party preference.

The compensation for each of these positions is $200,042.
