Donald Horowitz has been active in the justice system since the late 1950’s and continues to be fully involved in efforts to improve the quality and delivery of justice to all persons.
Judge Horowitz received his B.A. from Columbia University and his L.L.B. from Yale Law School. He began his long and varied career as a law clerk for a Justice of the Washington State Supreme Court. He was in private practice for many years, was Senior Assistant Attorney General and Chief Counsel to the State Department of Social and Health Services, served as a King County Superior Court Judge, and currently is a mediator and arbitrator.
He is known both in legal circles and in the larger community as a generous donor and a true leader and doer in the movement for equal, accessible and meaningful justice for every person regardless of means, disability, race, age, gender, lifestyle, and social status. The history of his publications and service to the people of our state, our nation, and to those in other countries in pursuit of justice, requires many pages and is perhaps best summed up by his receiving in 2010 the Washington State Bar Association’s Award of Merit which is the WSBA’s highest honor, most often given for long-term service to the Bar and the public.
Don is currently a Trustee of Seattle University, serves as an adviser to a number of schools at the University of Washington, and works closely with the State Access to Justice Board. One of Don’s favorite nonprofit organizations is one he founded, Seattle SCORES, an after-school program for vulnerable children in high need elementary schools that combines soccer, literacy through creative writing, and community service. When Don is not helping others, he and his wife enjoy travelling, laced with music, food, art and adventure.
