Letter from Betsy Greene
Chair, Chris Gaal for Judge Committee

Gaal has over twenty years of diverse legal experience in this community - approximately half of that time spent as a prosecutor, and half in private practice in a local law firm. In private practice Gaal represented clients in criminal defense cases, including court-appointed public defender cases. Gaal also handled civil cases including family law (divorce, custody, visitation), personal injury, contracts, and immigration law. Gaal understands the challenge of representing clients, defending their constitutional rights, as well as the importance of representing the public interest as an elected official and community leader.

Chris Gaal has seen our justice system from many different perspectives, and that balance and broad diversity of experience is important in order to effectively serve our community as a judge.

As prosecutor, Gaal worked hard to develop a progressive approach to public safety that reflected the values of this community. He focused on prevention, building valuable community partnerships, and creating new resources to improve public safety. Gaal's accomplishments have made significant contributions to quality of justice, and have been recognized with several awards.

As a member of the Board of Judges, Gaal will draw on both his experience as a legal professional and his background as a community leader to creatively promote evidence-based problem-solving approaches to important issues facing our community - such as the need to collaborate with local partners to better address drug and alcohol addictions, and mental health treatment.

Gaal takes issues of fairness and justice seriously. As a judge, Gaal pledges that he will listen, treat people with respect, make impartial decisions based on the evidence presented and the rule of law, and do his best to ensure the fair and equal administration of justice in our community.

Thank you,
Betsy Greene, Chair
Chris Gaal for Judge Committee
