Judge Dave Larson

For Justice. For All.

Meet Judge Dave Larson

Judge Larson has served as the presiding judge for Federal Way Municipal Court for 14 years. In his 16 total years on the bench he has earned a strong reputation as an accomplished trial judge.  He was a highly rated trial lawyer, trying cases in state and federal courts, for 23 years before becoming a trial judge in 2008.  

Judge Larson has worked closely with legislators and others across the state and nation to develop real strategies and coordination for our state’s criminal justice system and the communities they serve.  He wants to bring that needed leadership to the state’s highest court so that we can work together across this state to tackle the troublesome issues facing our communities and state.

Judge Larson promotes the balance that we need in our courts that uses both compassion and accountability as effective tools with those accused of crime. He has long devoted himself to the improvement of the justice system and judicial independence, earning him the President’s Award from the District and Municipal Court Judges Association in 2018 as well as other awards and recognition.

Judge Larson’s values, legal knowledge, and balanced approach to justice set him apart and has earned him the past and current support of Democrats and Republicans, Business and Labor, Judges and attorneys from across the state, and people just like you

Judge Larson will respect and follow our state constitution and the rights it provides to the people. He will also respect the proper role of the courts, to uphold and interpret the law, not create new law.
