Meet Judy Lazarus

Legal Assistant


Legal Assistant

 Litigation can be scary for people. I help put them at ease.

Judy has been assisting Courtney Law clients for over 20 years. She prepares trust documents, handles probate work, files documents and serves as a notary.

For Judy, the best part of the job is her interactions with clients, especially those she’s worked with for years. “Litigation can be scary for people,” she says. Judy helps put them at ease.


A Gilroy resident since 1986, Judy is active in the community. She has volunteered with the Gilroy Garlic Festival since moving to the area and served as its president in 2007. She has also been involved with community theater and she is a past member of the City of Gilroy Arts & Culture Commission. Judy is currently president of the Gilroy Assistance League and a member of the Gilroy Foundation Board of Directors.

When she isn’t working or volunteering, she loves spending family time with her husband, Jim, their three children and six grandchildren.
