David M. Christie

Education: Juris Doctor, Seattle University Law School 1987; Bachelor of Arts, University of Washington
Occupation: Judge, King County District Court

I’ve been privileged to serve for 16 years as a judge in your District Court.  Before standing for election, I practiced both civil and criminal law for 14 years.  I have represented many people at every level of Washington’s trial courts.  This experience, along with the feedback I’ve received from lawyers and citizens who have appeared as litigants and served as jurors, continues to improve my abilities to serve as a judge.


The King County Bar rates judges running for office before every election.  My ratings are excellent.  Much of the credit for my ratings goes to the outstanding clerks serving you in District Court.  My ability to work well with a team of talented, experienced and highly motivated clerks is something I value.


I support the Court’s mission to provide an accessible forum for fair, efficient and understandable resolution of civil and criminal cases while maintaining an atmosphere of respect for the dignity of all individuals.


I would appreciate your vote and the opportunity to continue serving you as a judge in your Court.  Thank you for taking the time to read this statement.  Please exercise your right to vote in this election.
