Deborah Schumacher
Second Judicial District Court
State of Nevada
Washoe County

Judge Schumacher has participated in numerous professional efforts to improve the lives of children and families in our community, including the Nevada Children's Justice Task Force, the task force on the Professionalization of Foster Care in Nevada, and the Statewide Adoption Advisory Committee. During 1998-99, she was an ad hoc member of ACR 57, the interim legislative subcommittee which examined juvenile delinquency laws.

Judge Schumacher initiated the District's Juvenile Drug Court and is currently participating in a pilot project in partnership with the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University, to improve cases regarding cross-over youth. Judge Schumacher is the "lead judge" of the District's "Model Court" project in the area of improving the handling of foster care cases, under the aegis of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.

Judge Schumacher has been on the faculty for continuing education sponsored by the National Judicial College, the National District Atttorney's Association, Nevada Trial Lawyers, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), the State Bar of Nevada, and Northern Nevada Women Lawyer's Association. Judge Schumacher serves as a member of the board of Trustees of NCJFCJ and also helps train Court Appointed Special Advocates.
