“A good judge must listen actively, respect all sides, render tough decisions, and work hard to make rulings according to the evidence and the law. I strive to do this every day. I am honored to be endorsed by dozens of other judges and leaders within our community.” — Judge Averil Rothrock

It is a great privilege to serve the people of my community as a King County Superior Court Judge. I strive to bring energy and enthusiasm to the bench by combining my legal and professional skills with respect for the law and love of public service. I have lived in King County for 49 years.  I have practiced law for nearly 25 years.  I care deeply about serving and improving the justice system here in Washington.

When he appointed me, Governor Inslee said, “Averil has a strong and abiding commitment to justice. Her dedication to serving her community is further demonstrated by her years of volunteer advocacy and pro bono legal work.” Inslee also said, “She has a strong reputation as credible, respectful and collaborative.”
