The CLEAR CHOICE for District Court Judge – Department 4


For more than a decade, I’ve devoted myself to prosecuting some of our community’s most violent predators and exacting justice on behalf of victims.  Now I want to elevate my public service, and my tough but fair approach, to Department 4.


— Barbara Schifalacqua


Barbara Schifalacqua, career prosecutor and Chief Deputy District Attorney in Clark County, officially filed her candidacy today for Clark County District Court Judge in Department 4, a seat being vacated by Judge Kerry Earley.

Schifalacqua was admitted to the Nevada Bar in 2007 and immediately went to work fighting crime. She has tried every type of criminal case, including 32 jury trials, since joining the District Attorney’s office.

“I have committed myself to be the agent of change,” Schifalacqua said of her motivation to run. “I am experienced, prepared and caring. And I know there’s no better choice, and that’s why I chose to throw my hat in the ring.”

One of us, for us

Barbara and her husband, Marc, are 14-year residents of Henderson where they are raising their two kids, 7 and 4, while both balancing careers as prosecutors.

Barbara grew up in Milwaukee and earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities before graduating from the Chicago’s Kent College of Law in 2006.

She will bring her Midwestern values of integrity and work-ethic to Department 4.
