She Was the First: Conversations with Women Trailblazers

Featuring: Judge Cynthia Adams


It has been said that timing is everything. No one knows this better than Judge Cynthia Adams. After being told that it wasn’t the “right” time for her to seek elected office, Judge Adams made history as Douglas County’s first woman Superior Court Judge. 

A long-time GAWL member and committed public servant, Judge Adams speaks openly with host Ebony Phillips about what those contemplating a run for elected office should consider beforehand and her decades-long support of the Atlanta Bar Association’s Summer Law Internship Program for high school students. Fortunately, she disregarded the naysayers and charted the course that earned her a place in history. She will be “the first, no matter what happens next.”

In addition to her regular court docket, Judge Adams also presides over the Douglas County Mental Health Court, and she also established the Douglas County Parental Accountability Court.
