Judge Virga retired from the Sacramento Superior Court where for over 22 years he presided over
civil and criminal jury trials, civil case management conferences, and preliminary hearings. He also served as
the Supervising Settlement Judge for over ten years and managed all of the assigned mediators and cases
in the program until he retired. He also conducted daily settlement conferences and co mediated over 600 cases
in many areas of civil and commercial litigation such as personal injury, construction defect, real estate,
product liability, employment and general breach of contract cases.
His reputation of always making himself available, strong settlement skills and caring about everyone he
works with earned him accolades in the legal community with both sides.
