In 1978, Judy resigned from the District Attorney's office to establish her own law firm. While a sole practitioner, she developed her litigation practice and was frequently associated by other attorneys to serve as the lead trial attorney on cases. In 1983, Judy co-founded the firm of Hoevet, Snyder, & Van Duyn. Judy left that firm in 2002 to open her current firm which focuses exclusively on civil litigation in the federal and state courts.
Judy has also developed a unique specialty practice representing medical doctors, psychologists, nurses, and other licensed professionals who are facing disciplinary proceedings before their state licensing boards.
In August of 2001, the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association honored Judy with its Distinguished Trial Lawyer Award. Earlier that year, in March 2001, the Oregon State Bar Litigation Section awarded Judy the Owen M. Panner Professionalism Award. In August of 2008, Judy became a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). ABOTA is an invitation-only organization for civil trial attorneys who have significant trial experience and who demonstrate civility, integrity and professionalism in their practice. The mission of ABOTA is, in part, to preserve the constitutional vision of equal justice for all Americans and to preserve our civil justice system for future generations. In 2009 Judy was awarded the Multnomah Bar Professionlism Award. Judy has also been recognized in several legal publications like SUPER LAWYERS, Best Lawyers, and others.
In addition to maintaining an active trial practice, Judy has served as a leader in numerous professional associations and volunteer boards and agencies. From 1989 to 1990, she served as president of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, an organization in which she has been active since 1980. From 1999 to 2000, she served as president of the Multnomah County Bar Association, an organization she joined in 1975. She has also been a long time member of the American Association for Justice, the National Employment Lawyers Association, the Federal Bar Association, and has been active with committees and in various positions with the Oregon State Bar Association.
Judy is frequently requested by the local, state, and federal bar associations and private organizations to serve as a presenter at Continuing Education programs for attorneys throughout the state. She lectures several times a year on various aspects of trial practice, including providing presentations on evidence, trial techniques, and substantive law issues.
