Judge April G. Troemper grew up in the small rural community of Edinburg, where she graduated salutatorian and was voted "Most Likely to Succeed." First in her family to advance past high school, she financed her education to pursue her dream of law.
In 2009, she was appointed as an Associate Circuit Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit, and on April 2, 2015, Judge Troemper was sworn in as an at-large Circuit Court Judge after being selected by the Illinois Supreme Court to fill a vacancy.
Judge Troemper is a firm believer that attorneys and judges should make time for their community and legal profession whether through volunteering, providing pro bono hours, speaking at events, or through leadership. Her other full-time job is that of a wife and mother. She is married to Brett, a science teacher and high school baseball coach. They have two children. When not on the bench, she is at a baseball field, volleyball or basketball court, supporting her children.
Judge Troemper intends to run for election in November 2016 to retain her position that she has worked so hard to achieve.
