Endorsement Statements

"Commitment to the law and the greater Pierce County is what Judge Evans brings to the bench. We need more judges with his experience and intellect." -Ashley Jackson, Attorney

"Judge Evans is an exceptional Judge, who is well respected, well researched and has a superb understanding of nuanced areas of the law. He is well suited to represent the community through solid leadership from the bench." -Kelsey Page, Attorney

"Judge Evans has the rare combination of intelligence and common sense. Pierce County is lucky to have him!" -Judge Jennifer Andrews, Pierce County Superior Court 

"Judge Evans has dedicated his career to the Pierce County community since he graduated from law school almost 20 years ago. He grew up in Tacoma, went to law school, and immediately returned to enter public service. I'm not sure there are many judges or lawyers in Pierce County who have done more in the past decade in the area of criminal justice reform, particularly when it comes to helping at-risk youth in the community. We are fortunate to have him as a judge." -Jason Amala, Attorney

"I have known Judge Evans for many years, and am confident that he is, and will remain a great judge for Pierce County." -Keith Hall, Attorney

"Judge Evan's is a great asset to the Pierce County community and has the Judicial temperament that the Pierce County bench needs." -Judge Tracy Flood, Bremerton Municipal Court

"Joe is the epitome of reasonableness and fairness. He’s great judge of character and represents his community with excellence. We would be lucky to have him elected into the Pierce County Superior Court as a judge." -Megan and Ryan Vollmar

"Judge Joseph Evans is extremely hardworking, honest and puts his constituents at the top of his priorities. He deserves to be retained as Pierce County Superior Court Judge." -Nancy Wright

"Judge Evans is just the type of judge Pierce County needs! I am happy to support and endorse him." -Shelly Andrew

"Judge Evans brings a strong sense of justice and a much needed perspective to the Pierce County Superior Court bench." -Mary K. High, Attorney

"I had a case in front of Judge Evans recently in an area of law that was new to him. I was very impressed with his hard work and preparation, which included his own study outside of the extensive briefing. He has a great demeanor and focus and is a strong addition to the bench." -William Lynn

"Retain Judge Evans! In the 6 months prior to my retirement, I had the honor of being Judge Evans' judicial assistant in Dept 16. His obvious knowledge of the law and the respect he shows all who appear before him make him a great asset to Pierce County Superior Court's stellar bench." -Angela Edwards, Former Judicial Assistant
