Judge Laura Riquelme

She hears a wide variety of civil, criminal, juvenile, and family law cases.ย  Judge Riquelme is deeply committed to the court, as well as providing community outreach about the legal system.ย  She particularly enjoys speaking with youth groups and students about civics, the court system, and leadership.

She was appointed to the bench in both 2016 and 2017 and elected to position two in 2018.ย  Campaigning provided an excellent opportunity to further engage with the community and learn about what Skagitonians expect and need from the legal system.ย  Judge Riquelme serves on committees within the Superior Court Judges Association and as an officer for several local boards.

In case anyone is really interested, here are two videos my husband shot during and immediately following the ceremony.

I should have added this as well. We had a great crowd (someone counted 98 people) for what I initially hoped would be a small, private ceremony.

Congratulations! Honored to know such a strong, inspiring person!

Sad I missed it! Had to teach. A wonderful photo, and an amazing thing for our county that you’re here serving ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks Judge Riquelme! ๐Ÿ™‚
