Gov. Bev Perdue recently appointed District Court Judge Patrice Hinnant to the Superior Court District 18A for Guilford County (N.C.). Judge Hinnant will finish the unexpired term of Judge Henry Frye Jr., who retired July 31, 2009. “Judge Hinnant’s years of experience on the District Court
bench have prepared her well for the Superior Court and will not only benefit the court, but also the citizens of Guilford County,” said Perdue.
Judge Hinnant was elected to the District Court Bench in 1996 and was unopposed in her most recent re-election. Prior to that, she was a private attorney and an assistant public defender in Greensboro. She started her legal career as a
paralegal with the firm of Chambers, Stein, Ferguson & Becton, and P.A. in Charlotte.
Hinnant is active in her community, serving on
numerous boards and civic groups in Guilford County and serving as past president of
the Greensboro Bar Association.
