Candidate for District Court Judge, Department 17
Anna Albertson (maiden name Reizakis) has served as a court appointed arbitrator (since 2014), Judge pro tem (since 2018), and Truancy Court Judge (2015-2017). She is a business owner, mother, attorney, and wife. She has tried over 50 cases to verdict and represented more than 1000 clients. She is regularly asked to lecture and run trainings for other lawyers in the community on subjects ranging from trial practice to rule implementation. For years she has successfully represented clients that are living paycheck to paycheck or trying to keep businesses afloat and as a result she understands how much the rulings made by a judge can affect an individual or small business.
Ms. Albertson has not had the typical journey to becoming a judge. Prior to law school, she was a teacher and tutor and before that a division one scholarship collegiate athlete, waitress, retail sales associate, and restaurant hostess. She started working and contributing financially to her household at fourteen (14) years old and managed to graduate early from high school fifth (5th) in her class when she was only sixteen (16) years old. She paid for college and law school with a mix of savings, working (often minimum wage and entry level positions), scholarships, and loans. She is not the typical privileged attorney or law firm founder and isn’t going to be the typical run of the mill judge as she has had to be a lot more than a lawyer on her journey to the bench. She is running for District Court Judge, Department 17 because her temperament, background, and experience make her the best candidate for the position.
