Ratings:

Several independent Bar Associations provide ratings of a judicial candidate’s qualifications for the job. The ratings are not endorsements. Instead, the ratings are intended to help voters determine if a candidate is qualified. In order to provide these ratings, the Bar Associations conduct extensive research of the candidate. They review detailed information about a candidate’s work history, contact dozens of references, and hold panel interviews of the candidates. The ratings are voluntary, and not all candidates choose to participate.

The following Bar Associations have provided ratings on Tracy Staab’s qualifications for the Court of Appeals:

  • Washington Veteran’s Bar Association: Exceptionally Well Qualified
  • Loren Miller (African-American) Bar Association: Exceptionally Well Qualified.
  • Latina/o Bar Assoc. of Wash: Exceptionally Well Qualified.
  • Joint Asian Judicial Evaluation Committee: Exceptionally Well Qualified.
  • Washington Women’s Lawyers: Well Qualified
  • Cardozo Society of Washington State: Well Qualified
  • Q Law: Well Qualified
