Hi Matthew. I found a survey that was conducted a few years ago in California by the National Center for State Courts. Here's a sample of what they list for judge compensation for state courts (I'm rounding the numbers a little bit): Associate Justice $218,000; Court of Appeal: $205,000; Superior Court $179,000.


Don't forget that there are all kinds of judges, and all kinds of courts. Some of these positions are appointed, and some are elected by the voting public.

Thank you comment icon Thank you! This is very helpful Matthew
