I have worked with a multitude of judges during my tenure on the Washington Supreme Court, Washington Court of Appeals, and Thurston County Superior Court. Based on that experience, I know what it takes to be a successful Superior Court Judge. Chris Lanese is exceptionally well qualified to be our next Thurston County Superior Court judge.
Chris grew up in a family of modest means and worked to put himself through Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School, graduating with honors from both. He began his career in private practice, representing individuals and businesses in complex areas such as intellectual property law and antitrust law.
But Chris’ passion is public service, and Chris left private practice after several years to join the Attorney General’s Office. He currently serves the public as a managing assistant attorney general handing complex cases ranging from jury trials in Superior Court to arguing before the Washington Supreme Court. Chris is a hardworking and skilled attorney who has earned a reputation as one of the best attorneys in his office. He also volunteers his time and legal expertise to help families and those in need.
Thurston County Superior Court hears countless complex civil cases that affect our entire county — and often our entire state, because we are the seat of state government. Chris has extensive experience handling these types of cases. Our community needs to elect judges with that experience. Please join me in voting Chris Lanese for Superior Court judge
