Chung is currently a partner at Lee Anav Chung and has served in private practice since 1989 with a focus on commercial litigation, arbitration, and mediation. He also serves as a Pro Tem Judge for King County District Court.

“Sam’s legal experience is exceptional and his service for the district court will serve him well as a judge,” said Inslee. “He has a stellar reputation and strong ties to the community. I know he’ll be a great asset to the bench.”
