Gov. Jay Inslee has appointed Taki Flevaris to the King County Superior Court, replacing Judge Mike Diaz, who was recently appointed to the Washington State Court of Appeals.


Flevaris has worked at Pacifica Law Group LLP, since 2013, with a focus on governmental, constitutional, policy, regulatory, and compliance issues. Before attaining partner at Pacifica, he was a clerk at the Washington State Supreme Court for Justice Steven González.

Since 2013, he’s served as a faculty affiliate with the Korematsu Center for Law and Equality at Seattle University School of Law, working on a number of constitutional and civil rights issues.

“Taki is a talented, smart attorney who has significant experience tackling extremely complex cases,” said Inslee. “And perhaps more importantly, his strong work ethic, compassion, and energy will be a welcome addition to the bench.”

Flevaris earned his bachelor’s degree at Northwestern University and his law degree from Harvard Law School.
