Cassandra Lopez Shaw


Snohomish County Superior Court

Position 8

Cassandra Lopez ShawLegal/Judicial Experience
Trial attorney for 17 years in both the private and public sectors, litigating civil, family, and criminal trials at all levels of State Courts, Federal Court, and the Court of Appeals.

Other Professional Experience
Extensive experience in administrative hearings; dedicating over 200 hours a year of pro bono work within the community. Fluent in Spanish.

Loyola Law School, JD; University of Washington, BA with Honors.

Community Service
Extensive volunteer time in educational settings for our youth, especially children from disadvantaged communities. I also volunteer in the YMCA Mock Trial Program, Bothell Youth Court, and many public school classrooms in Snohomish County.

As the only candidate with 17 years of diverse experience, I have litigated civil, family, and criminal trials at all levels of the state trial courts, in federal court, and the Court of Appeals. In my successful law practice, I work to empower our community by providing access to justice.

Humbled by the endorsement of local judges, and community leaders, I am rated “Exceptionally Well Qualified” by the Veteran’s and Loren Miller Bar Associations. I am endorsed by the Snohomish County Democrats, and was honored with the Domestic Violence Advocacy Award by Washington Women Lawyers for my work with domestic violence victims.

While my husband served as a Marine in Operation Iraqi Freedom I balanced being a working mom of two young children with college and law school. My husband now teaches science in public high school. We are proud Blue Star parents; both our daughter and son serve our country in the United States Navy and Marines and graduated from United States Naval Academy.

Service to my country has always been my calling. I pledge to continue to serve with humility and integrity as your next Superior Court Judge. I would be honored to have your vote. Thank you.
