Endorse Judge Peck


Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I appreciate your interest in learning about my background and my record of pursuing and providing justice for the citizens of King County each day.

I was honored to be unanimously appointed to be a King County District Court Judge by the King County Council in December of 2019. I was then elected to this position in the fall of 2020. Prior to my appointment, I served as a pro tem or fill in judge in the King County District Court system for 29 years.

I practiced as a trial lawyer in King County from 1983 to 2019.  As an attorney in private practice, I represented over 200 individuals in employment discrimination cases. I also represented individuals in civil rights matters and federal criminal proceedings.

As a judge, I value transparency, integrity and fairness. It’s my goal that each litigant that appears before me is entitled to understand their rights and the implications of any legal decisions they make. Throughout my legal career, I’ve worked to ensure that all individuals receive equal protection under the law, while also valuing the court system’s role in preserving public safety.

My legal accomplishments include: successfully pursuing a case through the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold free speech rights; chairing the Washington State Bar Association’s Civil Rights Committee; and serving as a board member to the Washington Community Action Network for more than three decades.

I have been honored to be unanimously endorsed by all the other twenty-four King County District Court Judges for re-election to this position. Fifty current and retired King County Superior Court Judges have also endorsed my candidacy. Seven Justices of the Washington State Supreme Court including the Chief Justice, have endorsed my candidacy.

I look forward to meeting you and to discuss my values and experience. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, thoughts or concerns at retainjudgepeck@gmail.com.

I am extremely honored that over one hundred Judges have now endorsed my candidacy.

Thank you,

Judge Kevin Peck
