Judge Kristyna Ryan
Judge Kristyna C. Ryan is assigned to the Fourth Municipal District and presides over civil, misdemeanor and felony matters. In addition to her Fourth District assignment, she was chosen by Chief Judge Evans to preside over the newly established Avondale Restorative Justice Community Court. The restorative justice court diverts cases away from the criminal court and gives the wrongdoer, the victim and the community the opportunity to address and repair the harm done.
Judge Ryan was elected to the bench in 2008. She has previously been found qualified and recommended by every bar association that has reviewed her credentials for retention.
Judicial Experience: Judge Ryan has been assigned to the Fourth Municipal District since 2010. From 2008 to 2010, Judge Ryan was assigned to the First Municipal District handling traffic matters and misdemeanor cases.
