I’ve known Judge Kristen Olbrechts for 27 years and trust her skill, knowledge, and legal acumen in the courtroom as an attorney and as a judge.

As a prosecutor, Kristen kept communities safe. As a defense attorney, she helped low income individuals navigate the law through the public defender’s office. And as a Judge Pro Tem, she made decisions rooted in the law and in the best interest of the people of Snohomish County.

For those of us who have dedicated our careers to the law, we want judges who have a legal expertise, a commitment to justice, and a true commitment to improving the lives of others.

That’s why I’ve endorsed Kristen, as have seven of my colleagues on the Washington State Supreme Court.

With nearly thirty years practicing the law on both sides of the bench, her experience is unmatched. She’s independent and accountable, impartial and responsible. And as an active member of the community, she knows the values that matter in Snohomish County.

Voters have an opportunity to re-elect a great judge and leader who —as she’s always done —will ensure justice is served accurately and with integrity.
