David A. Steiner

Education: JD, Seattle University; BA, University of Washington; Lake Washington High School
Occupation: Judge, King County District Court


It has been my pleasure to serve the citizens of King County as a District Court judge for the past 18 years.  During that time I have sought to maintain a proper balance between appropriate legal standards, common sense and compassion.  I have tried to maintain a balance between work to improve our court system as a whole while also working daily to increase my knowledge of the law and developing a better understanding of each individual who appears before me.


I have served in positions of leadership in King County District Court, both on the Executive Committee and also as the Presiding Judge.  While serving as the Presiding Judge I led the team that created our King County Domestic Violence Courts; I helped create our Work Crew jail alternative and co-chaired the committee that recommended we create our CCAP day reporting program.  I am currently the President-Elect of the District and Municipal Court Judge’s Association.


I have taught new judges at the Washington State Judicial College and assisted training judges at national level domestic violence judicial conferences.  For many years I have also volunteered for Kid’s Court and as a mentor for Kirkland’s International Community School Mock Trial team.
