Judge Bridget Cohee, Presents to Club

We were fortunate to have the Honorable Bridget Cohee as our speaker.  Judge Cohee is currently serving the 23rd Judicial Circuit in Jefferson and Berkeley Counties. In January 2025, Jefferson County will be its own circuit.  Judge Cohee was elected in May 2016. She presides over civil, felony, abuse and neglect, and juvenile cases. In addition to her service on the bench in those matters, Judge Cohee serves on the Judicial Investigation Commission, the Court Improvement Project, Juvenile Drug Court, and she is a member of the Executive Committee for the Judicial Association.

Prior to her election, Judge Cohee practiced law as a civil defense attorney for 16 years and was the managing member of the Martinsburg office of Steptoe & Johnson, PLLC. She also accepted court-appointed cases representing children as their guardian ad litem in abuse and neglect cases.
