Greg Wall

 

Kitsap County Superior Court

Position One

Greg WallEDUCATION: B.A. Pennsylvania Military College 1972; J.D. Gonzaga University Law School Magna Cum Laude 1978

OCCUPATION: Trial Attorney

EMPLOYER: Gregory J. Wall & Associates

LEGAL/JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE: 30 years trial experience. Greg is often selected as an arbitrator and mediator. Awarded the Kitsap County Bar Associationís Professionalism Award. Received the highest rating for competence and ethics from a national lawyers rating service. Serves as Hearing Officer for the Washington State Bar Association.

FAMILY: Served as an officer in the Army 1972-1975. Married to Shirley for 34 years; lived in Port Orchard since 1978. Raised three wonderful sons. Active member of the community.

CANDIDATE STATEMENT: Trial experience counts. For 30 years I have represented clients, including Kitsap County, in State and Federal Courts. I have tried hundreds of cases before judges and juries and argued appeals in the Washington Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals, and the Alaska and Washington State Supreme Courts. I am the only candidate who has argued before the United States Supreme Court.

The depth of my legal experience has earned endorsements from Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge, retired Superior Court Judges Karen Conoley, James Maddock, Bill Kamps and Terry McCluskey, and scores of Kitsap County attorneys.

I have also been involved in my community. I served on school district committees, chaired Friends of SK Parks, and was a scout leader. My participation in the South Kitsap community has earned me the endorsement of citizens from all walks of life.

A judge must have a depth of experience and be able to make tough decisions. As a Superior Court Judge, I will conduct trials and apply the law in a way that is fair to all parties. I will be respectful of peopleís different points of view, while always being mindful of the publicís safety.
