Thank you for taking a few minutes to visit my campaign website and learn about my qualifications to be a Superior Court Judge.

I have 22 years of experience representing ordinary people in the courts of King County and other counties across Washington. Most of the people I have represented have been facing a serious crisis in their lives.  I have defended people accused of crimes and have challenged police misconduct and inaccurate scientific evidence.  I have also advocated for victims of crime and have helped juvenile offenders and their families navigate the juvenile justice system. I have worked with people participating in an array of therapeutic courts to help them get their lives back on track. In all the cases I have handled my pursuit of justice in every single case has remained the same.

I have been in the courtroom nearly every day of the past 22 years and have tried more than 50 jury trials.  As an instructor of Advanced Trial Advocacy at UW Law School, I have used my courtroom experience to teach both students and other lawyers more effective ways to communicate with juries.

We live in uncertain times and must all adapt to the challenges caused by the coronavirus. The Superior Court must adapt too, and we need experienced trial judges to handle the overwhelming backlog of trials created by the court shutdown. But we must also implement needed reforms, ensure public safety, and protect important constitutional rights. To be meaningful participants in this process, judges must be ready.

I am ready to be your judge.

I am endorsed by 75 current and former trial court judges who know my work as an advocate for justice in our courts. They know what is needed to be an effective and contributing judge and are supporting me because of my proven courtroom skill and track record.  I am ready to join them. Together, we will promote justice, protect the community, and preserve our rights.

I ask for your vote on November 3.
