Gov. Jay Inslee appointed Andrea “Andy” Robertson today to the King County Superior Court. She will replace Judge Roger Rogoff, who resigned from the court last month.
For over two decades, Robertson has served as a criminal defense attorney in Western Washington, first as a public defender and then in private criminal practice. For the last ten years, she has owned and operated Robertson Law, PLLC, a small firm handling a range of criminal defense matters and civil protection orders, as well as administrative actions before the Washington State Department of Licensing.
In addition, since 2016, Robertson has taught Advanced Trial Advocacy at the University of Washington School of Law. She has also coached debate and mock trial teams at the high school level.
“Andy has developed impressive courtroom skills in her 20 years as a trial lawyer. She is a skilled litigator and consummate professional,” Inslee said. “She has built a career helping people navigate the justice system, and I think that experience will serve her well on the King County Superior Court.”
Robertson earned her law degree from the University of Washington School of Law and bachelor’s from Eastern Washington University.
