Steinberg announces candidacy for Chelan County Superior Court Judge


WENATCHEE—Long time Wenatchee attorney Charles R. Steinberg has announced his candidacy to run for the position of Chelan County Superior Court Judge, Position 3.

Steinberg, age 51, will be running against Kristin Ferrera who was appointed to the vacant court position in December by Governor Jay Inslee.

“My legal experience here in the Wenatchee Valley spans nearly 25 years”, said Steinberg.  “I’ve had the opportunity to represent local residents and businesses in Superior and District Courts throughout the state, in many types of matters that come before Superior Court.  I believe it is critically important it is that we have strong, experienced persons to serve our communities and citizens.”

Steinberg worked his way through undergrad at Shuck’s Auto Supply. He moved to Wenatchee in 1994 after receiving his law degree from Willamette University.  He worked initially with local attorneys Steven M. Clem and Neil Fuller prior to opening his own law firm.  His practice has focused primarily on Real Estate law, Property Rights, Estate Planning, Bankruptcy, and he has Criminal and Family Law experience.

Steinberg’s legal work in protecting property rights was recognized by the International Religious Liberty Association in Washington, D.C.  He traveled to Washington, D.C. to receive the award, given by the group in recognition of his legal work against King County in protecting citizen’s land use rights.

“I was truly honored to receive the award and recognition from the International Religious Liberty Association” said Steinberg. “Private property rights are fundamental to every citizen and every community.  It’s personally gratifying that my work against King County served as a blueprint for individuals in other states who are dealing with some of the same issues of government encroachment. ”

As part of Steinberg’s pro-bono volunteer work, he successfully represented a Navy Veteran in a labor dispute challenging the work practices of Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

Steinberg has been evaluated and is rated “Well Qualified” by the Washington State Veteran’s Bar Association.

The primary election will be August 7, 2018, with the general election in November 6, 2018.
