Early life and education

Wolfson was confirmed by the Senate on November 14, 2002 on a Senate vote and received her commission on December 4, 2002. She became Chief Judge on May 16, 2019, after the retirement of Jose L. Linares.

"Freda Wolfson wanted to be part of the United States legal system for as long as she can remember. A first-generation American, daughter of Holocaust survivors, she inherited a respect for the law and our system of justice born of her family’s harrowing years in war-torn Europe."
