Roanoke Valley Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Philip Trompeter has been honored with the Harry L. Carrico Outstanding Career Service Award. The 2012 Carrico award was presented this month by the Judicial Council of Virginia.
Trompeter, 60, is the first district court judge to receive the Carrico award. He has served on the J&DR bench in the 23rd District since 1985.
The award annually honors a judge who demonstrates “exceptional leadership in the administration of the courts while exhibiting the traits of integrity, courtesy, impartiality, wisdom and humility.”
Trompeter embodies those traits both on and off the bench, said Chief Justice Cynthia D. Kinser of the Supreme Court of Virginia.
“His career and public service are an inspiration to all of us in the judiciary,” Kinser said.
Trompeter was nominated by a group of attorneys from the Roanoke area and his nomination was endorsed by the Virginia Council of Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Judges, according to a Supreme Court news release.
