Dean R. Sargent
Virtually a lifelong resident of Seattle, I graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in History and a JD in Law. After graduation from Law School I served as an officer in the U.S. Army for two years. I returned to Seattle and became the staff attorney for the Washington State Judicial Council where I spent five years reviewing and rewriting the court rules for all of the courts of Washington. I also drafted statutes relating to the judicial branch of the state government and presented them to the judiciary committees of the state legislature. During this time I was a pro tem judge in the Seattle Municipal Court, and became the first full time night court judge. Robert McKisson and I formed the firm McKisson & Sargent in 1980 which became McKisson Sargent & Oliason P.S. in 1987.
I am admitted to practice in Federal District Court and Bankruptcy Court, and all Washington State Courts.
