Ingrid will be an important voice for equality on the Pierce County Superior Court!


Ingrid McLeod is a Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner and former civil litigator in private practice. As a Court Commissioner, she ensures everyone who enters her courtroom is treated with respect and applies the law fairly for everyone, including some of the most vulnerable members of our community – often experiencing an acute crisis – including in juvenile law, domestic violence, family law, landlord-tenant, and civil commitment cases. Commissioner McLeod is running for Judge because she cares deeply about her community and supporting the court’s ongoing work of administering justice accessibly, fairly, efficiently, and openly. Commissioner McLeod has broad support from the bench, including a large majority of Pierce County Superior Court Judges and Commissioners; and a majority of Justices on the Washington Supreme Court and Judges on the Court of Appeals, Division II. Multiple bar associations, including the Pierce County Minority Bar Association, QLAW, and Washington Women Lawyers, evaluated Commissioner McLeod and rated her as Exceptionally Well Qualified for the office of Pierce County Superior Court Judge. Commissioner McLeod is a longtime Pierce County resident and is deeply committed to family and the community. She is the child of an immigrant whose family came to the United States for a fresh start in the early 1950s and a U.S. Navy Veteran. Her family instilled her deep commitment to citizenship, education, service, and hard work. Ingrid has served the local community through past Board service for the YWCA Pierce County; past volunteer legal service; is a current member of her local P.T.A.; and has worked on multiple community food, clothing, and school supplies drives. In her personal life, Ingrid is happily married to a fellow public servant, and they are the proud moms of two young children.
