“I believe in fairness, impartiality, and compassionate enforcement of the law. I know the importance of taking time to hear each matter and carefully consider how the court process impacts the lives of those who appear before me. I believe that our judicial system can improve our community and should always protect public safety.”

Judge Rosen has served as an elected judge in the Seattle Municipal Court for the last four years.  Citizens are most likely to have contact with the Seattle Municipal Court, and what happens there affects everyone. The court handles hundreds of thousands of traffic cases each year, as well as thousands involving domestic violence, theft, DUI, and suspended licenses. 

Before being elected to the bench, Judge Rosen was in private practice handling complex civil cases and misdemeanor criminal cases.  Prior to his private practice, he was an Assistant Attorney General prosecuting sexually violent predators.  He attended the University of Minnesota Law School as well as the University of Washington.

During his term in office, Judge Rosen has served on numerous committees within the court system.  He currently serves on the committee of judges and court administrators that are working to update the statewide court computer systems.  He was also honored with exceptionally high marks from the lawyers who participated in the King County Bar Association’s 2014 judicial performance survey. 

A dedicated husband and father, Judge Rosen has lived with his family in NE Seattle for 20 years. His children attend public school, and he regularly volunteers at high school mock trial events.

Judge Rosen is honored to once again serve as your judge in the Seattle Municipal Court.
