Dawn M. Bettinger



Dawn M. Bettinger


Education: I followed my love of the law and completed law school in two years
Occupation: I am honored to serve as a Judge Pro Tem

Statement:

I know what it takes to be fair, be compassionate, and hold people accountable.  I have been practicing criminal law since 2001.  I have been a King County Prosecutor, a Public Defender and have had my own practice.

 

I believe I'm uniquely qualified for this position.  After having a successful criminal defense practice, I have now focused my service as a Judge Pro Tem for a number of courts for several years.  My duties as Judge Pro Tem mirror those of an elected judge.  I have ruled on substantive issues and have never been overturned on appeal.

 

I developed my love of the law from my grandmother who was a legal secretary. She would tell me about the judges in the courtrooms making differences in peoples lives everyday and about their smarts, their wit and their compassion.  She encouraged me to work hard, treat every person fairly, and to show mercy while being accountable to myself and the people I serve.

 

As my career evolved, I've looked to make more of an impact in my community.  I look forward to serving the community and assisting those less fortunate.  It is time for a New Dawn for Justice.
