“Robertson has the community awareness and trial experience
to be a great judge for King County.”
— Recommendation in the 2020 Progressive Voters Guide

I made the decision to seek a position as a King County Superior Court Judge because many people believed that my 22 years of courtroom experience would be an important asset to the Court – now, more than ever. Apparently, Governor Inslee agreed, and when a mid-term vacancy opened up on the Court recently, the Governor appointed me to fill the position. I am deeply honored by the trust he has placed in me and by the support I have received from so many people throughout the past year.
We live in uncertain times and must all adapt to the challenges caused by the coronavirus. The Superior Court must adapt too, and we need experienced trial judges to handle the overwhelming backlog of trials created by the court shutdown. But we must also implement needed reforms, ensure public safety, and protect important constitutional rights. To be meaningful participants in this process, judges must be ready. I remain ready.
I took office as a Superior Court Judge on December 31, 2020 and must run for election to retain my position in 2021. The strong support I have already received gives me confidence. I look forward to serving the people of the State of Washington.
Judge Andrea Robertson
