HONORABLE SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE
ABOUT HON. JUDGE TAMMY STOKES
On January 3, 2023, in a crowded courtroom of fellow judges, members of the bar, family, friends, and supporters from the community, Judge Tammy Stokes was formally sworn in as Judge of the Chatham County Superior Court by the Chief Judge, Penny Haas Freesemann.
Judge Stokes has held a judicial post on the Chatham County Recorder’s Court since 2004, ascending to Chief Judge in 2012. Eighteen years ago, her appointment marked her as the first black female judge in Chatham County and making county history as the first black chief judge. Prior to her current work, Stokes served as Judge Pro-Tempore for the City of Thunderbolt, Chatham County Probate Court, and Chatham County Juvenile Court, and owned a private law practice in Savannah from 1996-2004. Previously, Stokes served as an Assistant District Attorney in Fulton County, and Assistant Solicitor in Dekalb County Solicitor’s Office, and Juvenile Court. She began her law career as a staff attorney with the United States Board of Veteran Appeals in Washington, D.C.
Tammy Stokes received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Georgia Law School, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Georgia. She calls herself a “triple dog” because she also graduated from A.E. Beach High School in Savannah, whose mascot is a bulldog, like the University of Georgia.
Tammy Stokes was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, where she now lives with her husband Larry. She dedicates her life to her hometown through her work and community involvement.
Judge Stokes continues to be a committed public servant, embodying justice, fairness and integrity.
