Judy Perry Martinez of SPS&R has been inducted into the National Center for State Courts’ (NCSC) Warren E. Burger Society, an invitation only organization.

Since the beginning of her career, Judy has demonstrated a commitment to public service including, along with colleagues, establishing the New Orleans Pro Bono Project and later serving as a pro bono fellow for Southeast Louisiana Legal Services. Through her ongoing advocacy and policy work, she has advanced the need to close the nation’s access-to-justice-gap which is a main initiative of the society.

The society celebrated Judy’s accomplishments and inducted her along with six other inductees on November 18 in Washington D.C.  

Named for the NCSC visionary and former U.S. Supreme Court chief justice, Warren E. Burger, the Burger Society honors individuals who have used their time, talent and support to advance the organization in exceptional ways.

The National Center for State Courts, headquartered in Williamsburg, Va., is a nonprofit court organization dedicated to improving the administration of justice by providing leadership and service to the state courts. Founded in 1971 by the Conference of Chief Justices and Chief Justice of the United States Warren E.
