Susan Carbon Confirmed as Full-Time District Court Judge
Susan Carbon Confirmed as Full Time District Court Judge
 

SUSAN B. CARBON, who had served since 1996 as a part-time Concord District Court and Grafton County Family Division judge working five days a week, was confirmed by Gov. Jeanne Shaheen and the Executive Council as a full-time Concord District Court judge Sept. 25.

In 1991, Carbon was appointed a part-time judge in Pittsfield District Court, which merged with the Concord court in 1995. In 1996, Carbon was also appointed the part-time supervisory judge of the Grafton County Family Division in Plymouth. Between the two judgeships, Carbon had been working five days a week, but was still considered a part-time judge being paid on a per diem basis, without benefits.

Although the appointment to full-time status is more of a formality, it does mean that Carbon will now receive benefits. She said she will also be sitting more in Concord District Court, although she will continue as a Family Division judge, as well.

"My responsibilities won't change much, but the permanence of my position has," said Carbon. "I can now make a more global commitment to the court."

"I'm thrilled to be given this opportunity to work on a full-time basis in Concord District Court and look for ward to being a real, contributing member of the full-time judiciary," Carbon added.

During her tenure as a judge, Carbon has done a lot of work in the areas of child abuse and neglect and domestic violence. She is a member of the National Council of Juvenile & Family Court Judges, a leading organization on these issues through which she has done a lot of judge training.

Carbon is a graduate of DePaul University Law School and was admitted to the NH Bar in 1980. She worked as an attorney with Wescott, Millham & Dyer, Laconia, from 1982 until her appointment to the Family Division in 1996. She was president of the NH Bar Association from 1993-94.
