Judge Pro Tem

Michael G. Desmarais has served as a Judge Pro Tem since 2006, mostly in probate, for the Santa Clara County Superior Court. When a case is set for trial, the court routinely schedules a settlement conference the week before with a “judge pro tem” presiding in an effort to settle the case.

Mr. Desmarais is one of the most experienced pro tem judges in Santa Clara County. His expertise and ability to settle even the most difficult of cases makes him a popular choice.
