Judd married Madeline Perry Hartwell daughter of judge Alfred S. Hartwell in Honolulu on July 21, 1899. They had four children: a son who died young in 1901, Bernice Judd born October 18, 1903, Dorothy Judd born April 8, 1906, and Albert Francis Judd, 3rd Born March 15, 1909.

His brother Lawrence McCully Judd was born March 20, 1887 and became Governor of the Territory of Hawaii in 1929–1934.

Judd practiced law in Honolulu from 1899 through 1914. He was founding secretary of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks lodge in Honolulu, but resigned about a month after the first meeting. He served as trustee for the endowment of the Kamehameha Schools, trustee of the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, and Charles R. Bishop Trust.

From 1903 to 1905, he served as member of the Commission compiling the laws of Hawaii. From 1904 to 1906 he served as local magistrate in Honolulu. In 1906, he went to Manila for the Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association, where he lobbied the Philippine government to allow the first Ilocano laborers to work on sugar plantations in Hawaii. He was elected to the Hawaiian territorial Senate from the third district on Oʻahu, and chairman of the judiciary committee, during the legislative sessions of 1911 and 1913. In 1923 to 1926, and again from 1933 to 1935, he was again on the commission to compile and revise laws of the territory.

Yale awarded him an honorary Master of Arts degree in 1934. Judd died December 18, 1939.
