DENVER - Governor Bill Owens announced the appointment today of Julie C. Hoskins of Greeley to the Weld County Court. The appointment is effective immediately, filling a vacancy created when the Governor appointed Judge Marcelo A. Kopcow to the district court bench July 1.
"Julie Hoskins has earned an excellent reputation during her legal career and most recently as a well respected magistrate," Governor Owens said. "Her strong work ethic and efficient docket management make her uniquely qualified for the challenges awaiting her in Weld County Court."
Hoskins has served as a Juvenile Court Magistrate in the 19th Judicial District since May 2003. Prior to serving as magistrate, she spent 10 years with the Greeley law firm of Houtchens, Houtchens & Greenfield. Her litigation practice focused primarily on juvenile delinquency and domestic relations matters. An active member of her community, Hoskins was selected as the Volunteer of the Year by Weld County Partners in 1998, 2002 and 2004. She received her Bachelor's Degree from Bethany College in West Virginia and law degree from the Dickinson School of Law in Pennsylvania.
The initial term of office for a county court judge is a provisional term of two years, after which the incumbent must stand for retention to serve an additional four years. The annual salary for this position is $105,513.
