July 22, 2019
Judge Bradshaw joins Corr Cronin following over 10-years of service as a King County Superior Court Judge, a majority with the civil department presiding over civil litigation, and years as a King County Prosecuting Attorney, bringing a unique and unparalleled skill set to our civil trial practice.
“I’m thrilled that Judge Bradshaw has selected our firm to return to what he does best: trying high stakes cases to a successful jury verdict. I spent months in trial with Tim when he and I were homicide prosecutors and can confidently say that there’s no one like Tim when it comes to making a case to a jury.” Steve Fogg, Partner Corr Cronin.
Judge Bradshaw was first elected in 2008 to King County Superior Court. He was inducted by U.S. District Court Judge Richard A. Jones and was re-elected unopposed in 2012 and 2016. During his career as a judge, Judge Bradshaw served on the Superior Court Jury, Security, Court’s & Community, and Personnel Committees; he was a multi-year volunteer judge to the YMCA Moot Court competition; an invited Judge for the University of Washington Law School mock jury trial; faculty member teaching Evidence at the Judicial College, 2017 and 2018; and Co-Presenter on Hearsay Evidence to King County Superior Court Judges, 2019. Additionally, throughout his career, he has been a guest speaker and presented at various events including, the Civil Court Judicial Forum, Superior Court Boot Camp, Family Law Forum, Trial Strategies From The Experts, and the annual ABOTA meeting.
Prior to handling thousands of cases as a King County Superior Court Judge, Judge Bradshaw was a noted trial attorney in the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, a tenure that included litigating one-hundred twenty-five jury trials to verdict. A founding member of the homicide and cold case units, he pioneered multiple forensic efforts that garnered international interest, including the first DNA (both human and animal) cases in county history. Bradshaw prosecuted the murders of musician Mia Zapata, Sheriff’s Deputy Herzog, the Northlake Shipyard murders, and the nation’s most prolific serial arsonist. In recognition of these achievements, Judge Bradshaw was awarded the Norm Maleng Outstanding Trial Advocacy Award.
Judge Bradshaw earned his B.A. degree at the University of Puget Sound and his J.D. degree from the Seattle University School of Law where he was Class Speaker.
