Occupation: King County District Court Judge, Seattle


I would like to tell you about the hard work that the District Court does for the citizens of King County. We handle a large volume of traffic infractions; criminal cases, such as DUI and Domestic Violence; civil matters to $75,000.; small claims and protection orders. We are the People's Court.

The Court's budget has been reduced over the years. We have responded with innovation and grace. We have consolidated cases to take advantage of economy of scale and expertise. We have created award winning technology, such as a unified call center and electronic court records. Our future will bring electronic filing of court documents and improved public access through technology.

We work to solve problems. Our Relicensing Court helps people become licensed. Our Domestic Violence Court responds quickly with expertise and close monitoring. Our award winning Regional Mental Heath Court improves the lives of the mentally ill, increasing stability, reducing recidivism and incarceration of the mentally ill. Our Veterans Court serves those who have served us. The judges and staff of the District Court are deeply committed to solving problems and improving lives through a high quality court.
