Judith Susan Blum was born in 1942, in Brooklyn, New York, where she studied at James Madison High School, and then continued her studies at the American University of Washington, where she earned a degree in government.

Prior to her big breakthrough on television, Judith Sheindlin worked as a corporate lawyer and a criminal court judge, until she landed a job as a supervising judge. Even before her on screen appearances, Sheindlin made it to the “Los Angeles Times” magazine and then appeared on the television news magazine entitled “60 Minutes”. Such media exposure led her to become a well-recognized face in the industry, as well as inspired the release of her very first book called “Don’t Pee on My Leg and Tell Me It’s Raining”, which was published in 1996.
Soon after that, Sheindlin retired from her position as a family court judge, and instead went on to create the popular television series “Judge Judy”, after which she became known not as Judith Sheindlin but Judge Judy.

In addition to appearing on “Judge Judy”, Judy Sheindlin has been a guest on such shows as “Saturday Night Live”, “Larry King Live” with Larry King, “The Tonight Show”, “The View” and many more.
