DAVE COMBELLACK

Longtime attorney David Combellack announced he is running for superior court judge in Department 7.

The election is June 3 2014. Combellack, 64, is running for the seat currently held by Judge Douglas Phimister.

At a fundraiser recently Combellack was introduced by retired Superior Court Judge Pat Riley, for whose law firm Combellack clerked while still a law student at McGeorge Law School.

A lifelong resident  of El Dorado County and alumnus of El Dorado High School, Combellack has been in private law practice in the county for 37 years, representing people inside and outside of court on virtually every kind of matter.

Combellack has given back to the community through volunteer activities that included service on the Community Foundation Board, Marshall Hospital Board and numerous other volunteer organizations.

He has served as president of the El Dorado Bar Association, a mentor to Teen Court and has served as a judge pro tem for the Superior Court where he handled a wide variety of cases. Combellack said he is particularly proud of his success as a judge pro tem in settling cases through the Alternate Dispute Resolution program. This not only saves the parties legal fees and expenses, but helps avoid court congestion that delays others from “having their day in court,” he said.

Combellack said he believes that his long experience running a successful small law office and lifetime commitment to this community makes him the best qualified candidate for judge of the Superior Court. If elected, he will decide cases based only on the facts and law applicable to each case, he said.

“I want every member of this community to know that he or she will always receive a fair hearing and prompt decision in my courtroom and that my commitment to this community will continue after I am elected,” Combellack said.

Combellack is a graduate of UC Davis and the McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific.
