Since 1983, National Missing Children’s Day has taken place every year on May 25th. Each year we honor the efforts of agencies, organizations, and individuals to protect children. Today we also want to highlight the efforts of Gary Judd who is one of our associate attorneys.

Gary is a Founding Member of the Polly Klaas Foundation and has served as past president and active member of the Board of Directors for over 20 years. He is currently a Board Emeritus Member.

During the search for Polly, Gary balanced his duties as an attorney with full support and encouragement from senior partner Alan Brayton, whose daughters attended school with Polly. Gary was encouraged to devote time to the active search coordinated by members of the Petaluma community for the 60 plus days until Polly was recovered.

The Polly Klaas Foundation is a legacy of the community’s effort and ongoing dedication and commitment to keeping children safe for over 23 years.
