For 17 years, Judge Lora Christine Cubbage spent many hours behind a barber chair getting to know about the cares and concerns of the citizens of Greensboro, N.C. It was there that she realized that she had a higher calling to serve in a space that would allow her to affect societal change and impact top policymakers and leaders. 


At age 29, Cubbage was a single mother and decided to apply, and was accepted, to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. She later went on to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law to get her law degree and serve the citizens of North Carolina. 


Cubbage began her legal career as an Assistant District Attorney in Guilford County. In October 2018, Cubbage was appointed by Governor Roy Cooper to the Superior Court bench. She successfully defended her seat in the November 2018 election.  


Cubbage views her judgeship as a position of trust and as an opportunity for service. She is collaborating with community, business, and justice partners to improve the courts wherever possible and is working to help ensure North Carolina courts are open, fair and welcoming to our citizens and businesses.
