Community Service: I am passionate about serving the community. Last year alone, I donated over 700 hours in volunteer legal work.
Statement: It’s important that our Superior Court Judges are fair and balanced. Having 18 years of robust criminal and civil trial practice as a Deputy Prosecutor, civil rights, and Special Assistant US Attorney, I have the most balanced experience. As an Industrial Appeals Judge, I treat everyone who enters my courtroom with dignity and respect. I have dedicated my life to public service, and believe that my depth and breadth of experience uniquely qualifies me to serve as Judge. Members of our local bar associations agree. I’ve been rated "Exceptionally Well Qualified" by the Veteran’s, Qlaw, Joint Asian, and Loren Miller Bar Associations – the highest rated candidate in this race. As a US Army JAG Officer and Deputy Prosecutor, I understand the court’s role in keeping our community safe. I prosecuted felony sexual assault and domestic violence cases, and have worked to protect the rights of victims at the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center. Endorsed by 24 Judges, 17 bi-partisan Elected Officials, and numerous community leaders, scholars, and organizations – including Tacoma Police, the Firefighters of Tacoma, Orting, East, West & Central Pierce, and Mt. Rainier Emergency Physicians. Join us in voting Dominique Jinhong for Superior Court Judge!
