Synopsis

My name is Judge Christine Walczyk. It is my honor to serve you on the Wake County District Court Bench. Since being appointed by Governor Easley, I have presided over thousands of family, civil, criminal, and traffic cases.
Serving as a District Court Judge requires integrity, a keen knowledge of our laws, and the consistent exercise of judicial restraint. I work hard every day to serve Wake County’s citizens in a reliable and efficient manner and to treat every litigant and every attorney fairly and with respect.
