Judge Terry L. Jurado to retire at end of March

Renton welcomes new Municipal Court Judge Jessica Giner as Judge Terry J. Jurado retires at the end of March.

Judge Giner was unanimously selected in March 2021 by the Renton City Council and mayor to serve as one of the city’s two municipal court judges.

Judge Giner brings to the bench 15 years of experience in criminal law and has been in dozen of courts in Western Washington that have regularly relied on her services as an experienced Judge Pro Tem.

Judge Giner is a native of South King County and is a member of both the Renton Chamber of Commerce and the Renton Rotary Club, where she has spearheaded a project to connect local farmers with food banks to provide them with needed fresh food.

As a member of the King County Women’s Advisory Board, she has worked to address gender-based domestic violence, particularly in minority communities, and has advocated for county funding for affordable child care.

She is the coach of a mock trial team at Eastlake High School and a volunteer with Girl Scouts and Little League.

Judge Giner and her husband, David, a software engineer, have two children, ages 6 and 8, who attend public schools.
