Judge Anna Alexander was first elected as a Superior Court Judge in 2019 after nearly 20 years of practice as an attorney in various diverse disciplines. A former public defender, Judge Alexander was an attorney in private practice, representing clients in civil and criminal matters, while also serving as a Judge Pro-Tem in Snohomish County.
As a first-generation immigrant whose family escaped communism, Judge Alexander had a humble beginning. Judge Alexander worked and paid her own way through college at the University of Washington. At age 19, Judge Alexander was the youngest woman ever admitted to the University of Washington Law School, where she received distinguished and honors marks. She received her JD in 2000.
In 2019 Judge Alexander received the Washington Women Lawyers’ Chapter Member of the Year award and was recognized by the organization for being an inspiration to young lawyers in our community and for her pro bono work for those individuals without resources to hire an attorney. Judge Alexander serves on Juvenile Court, Family Law and Law Library Committees of the Superior Court. She and her husband have two children, and a stubborn Boston Terrier.
