King County District Court

Northeast Division, Position Seven

Larry Mitchell

Occupation: Prosecuting Attorney, City of Redmond, WA

Education: Georgia Tech, BS Industrial Mgmt; John Marshall Law School, Juris Doctor

Statement: Larry Mitchell has the Legal Experience to be District Court Judge. Mr. Mitchell has sixteen years of courtroom experience prosecuting criminal cases, traffic infractions, drug forfeitures, and civil code violations.

The King County Bar Association and Washington Women Lawyers rate Larry Mitchell as “Exceptionally Well Qualified.” Since 1994 he has worked as Prosecuting Attorney for the City of Redmond and has prosecuted thousands of criminal cases and traffic infractions in King County District Court. He has conducted hundreds of trials and argued many appeals in higher courts including three cases before the Washington Supreme Court.

He is widely respected in the legal community and is known for his integrity, fairness, sound judgment, and sense of justice. Mr. Mitchell offers voters proven courtroom experience and extensive knowledge of the law. As a judge he will treat people fairly, conduct courtroom proceedings in a manner that is respectful to all, and make decisions that respect individual rights and protect the community.

His long public service has made him thoroughly familiar with the kinds of cases heard in District Court. As a prosecutor Mr. Mitchell has worked diligently to make our community a safe place to live by holding offenders accountable, giving those individuals who can rehabilitate themselves the opportunity to do so, and making sure that convicted persons who are threats to public safety are removed from the streets. For fifteen years he has served as a volunteer lawyer for the Eastside Legal Assistance Program providing legal assistance to economically disadvantaged persons. Larry and his wife are nineteen-year residents of Redmond, WA.
