A Taylorsville woman became the newest attorney in Plumas County last week.

Kristin Charbonnier, a 2004 Greenville High School graduate, was sworn in by Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman during a courtroom ceremony Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Charbonnier passed the bar exam in July after graduating from the University of California at Davis’ King Hall School of Law in May.

Charbonnier is doing her second internship at the Plumas County District Attorney’s Office. She also interned at the DA’s office in 2011.

Charbonnier wore a broad smile as she took the oath in front of a gathering that included her mother, LouAnn Charbonnier, of Taylorsville.

“This is a really exciting time in my life,” Kristin said. “I’m thankful for all the support from my family that helped me get to this point.

“I’m very grateful to Dave Hollister and the district attorney’s office for giving me the opportunity to be here.”

Charbonnier, who graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2009, said she hasn’t decided which direction she will take in regards to her law career.

She began her current internship with the county in October.
