Francisco F. Firmat
Born in Cuba, Judge Francisco F. Firmat
(Ret.) immigrated to the United States as a temporary orphan with no knowledge
of English when his father—a jurist himself—realized that there was no hope for
their family under the communist regime. Judge Firmat began his legal career in
1976 as a sole practitioner in Fullerton, California, following his graduation
from Western State University School of Law. He was appointed to the North
Orange County Municipal Court in 1985 and elevated to the Superior Court in 1990,
where he has served on both the Civil and Family Law Panels. After entering
into a full-time Family Law assignment, Judge Firmat quickly rose to become the
Supervising Judge of the Family Law Panel, in which capacity he used his
position to foster significant institutional change to improve access to
justice for litigants who are at risk of being marginalized by the justice
system. Judge Firmat is a speaker at churches
and retreats and teaches workshops on contemplative prayer. He also
facilitates the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius, a nine-month small group
journey in prayer.
His accolades are numerous, including the American Academy
of Matrimonial Lawyers’ Distinguished Jurist Award (2009); the Judicial Council
of California’s Aranda Access to Justice Award (2008), which is awarded to a
judge who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to improving access to the
courts and who has significantly improved access for low- and moderate-income
Californians; the Orange County Women Lawyers Association’s Judge of the Year
Award (2007); the OCBA Family Law Section’s J.E.T. Rutter Judge of the Year
Award (2005); the OCBA Harmon G. Scoville Award (1992), which honors a member

standards of the profession and who has contributed to the Bar while
championing our constitutional system of justice; among others; and the
Franklin G. West Award (2013), which is the highest honor awarded by the Orange
County Bar Association.
Although Judge Firmat retired from full-time public service in
2013, he leaves behind an extensive legacy of improvements to the bench and
bar, including an interpreter intern program to assist family law litigants
through a collaboration with California State University, Los Angeles; a
non-litigation track that enabled OCBA Family Law attorneys and the Court to
reduce rejected judgments by 26 percent in a single year; a self-help forum
involving quarterly meetings between the Public Law Center, the Legal Aid
Society of Orange County, the Asian Pacific American Legal Center, local law
school clinics, and others to share information and strategies to improve
access to self-help for litigants; town hall meetings designed to allow
stakeholders to discuss changes in the legal system in a non-intimidating
environment; mediation training at the Strauss Institute for Family Law
judicial officers; expedited judgments in family law cases to benefit both
children and the families’ financial welfare; and more. Judge Firmat’s
innovative programs have made a difference and will undoubtedly leave a lasting
legacy in the Orange County community.Judge Firmat’s personal background and experiences have informed his
values and produced a courageous, compassionate, and extraordinary lawyer and
