“Erin has spent her legal career serving the people of Union County, and I’m confident that she’ll make an excellent district court judge,” Gov. Cooper said.
Erin Hucks will fill the vacancy created by the Honorable William “Tripp” Helms, who now serves as District Court Judge in a different Union County district. Hucks has been an owner and partner at Hucks & Regan, LLP for more than 10 years. She has held leadership roles in the Union County Bar Association and was named one of the best criminal law attorneys in North Carolina by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys in 2017.
A Union County native, Hucks received her law degree from the McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific and her Bachelor of Arts from North Carolina State University.
