Know your candidates


July 24, 2012

Jack Follis

Last week the Snohomish County Bar Association’s Judicial Bar Poll rated me the most qualified candidate by a margin of more than two to one. Ninety-three percent of judges and lawyers who know me rated me “excellent” or “good”.

I have 15 years of judicial experience as a court-appointed arbitrator deciding actual cases pending in Superior Court. An arbitrator, like a judge, conducts hearings and issues decisions. As an arbitrator, I follow the law and do not let personal beliefs or outside influences sway me.

I am a senior trial attorney at Anderson Hunter, the largest law firm in the county. For 26 years I have helped businesses and citizens, including crime victims, navigate their way through our court system.

I volunteer with Snohomish County Legal Services and Housing Justice to provide legal aid to those who can’t afford it. Along with my wife of 23 years, I volunteer extensively in the public schools. I was a Big Brother and served on that organization’s Board. I coached our sons’ Little League teams for eight years.

I want to spend the rest of my career serving the citizens of Snohomish County and would be honored to receive your vote.
