Amy Queen 7152 RT.jpg

My name is Amy Queen, and I am running for Marion County Circuit Court Judge, Position 14. For nearly 20 years I have been serving the people of Marion County through my work in the District Attorney’s Office. In 2002 I started as a law clerk while attending Willamette University College of Law. Since graduation I have served as a Deputy District Attorney. Today I am the Trial Team Leader of the Domestic Violence team and the Public Information Officer. Service and experience matter. I am running for judge because justice, public safety and temperament matters. Everyone who enters our courthouse deserves their day in Court before a Judge with a demonstrated record of hard work, leadership, respected decision making, and integrity. You deserve a Judge with the experience, patience, temperament, and reputation that demonstrates everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.  If elected, I would be the first female Filipino American to serve in Marion County.


  • Making Marion County a safer place to live and work since 2002

  • Domestic Violence Trial Team Leader protecting victims of crimes and helping keep victims and their families safe

  • Successfully prosecuted the most serious crimes, including aggravated murder 


  • Trusted by law enforcement, defense counsel, and victims to make the right decisions for a just outcome

  • Respected for strong work ethic, integrity, fairness, and dedication to justice for all

  • Demonstrated track record protecting our community and supporting countless victims of crime

My 18 years of service as a trial lawyer and leader for the Marion County District Attorney’s Office, unwavering dedication to public safety and protecting victims of crime, and strong engagement with all court and community partners to promote responsible systems and just outcomes has prepared me to serve as a Judge.  If elected I promise to continue to work hard, seek justice for all and treat every person before me with dignity and respect.

I ask for your support and your VOTE.


I am a trial lawyer who for 18 years has been appearing daily in Marion County Circuit Court for every type of appearance from arraignment to trial.  I supervise the Domestic Violence team, the Case Support team, and our law clerk program.   I am the representative for our office on committees and workgroups to develop best practices with all criminal justice and community partners. I am the Public Information Officer managing all media inquiries and releases.  I receive and issue decisions for all Public Records Appeals and supervise the lawyer who manages all Public Records Requests.  I am one of four lawyers who handle officer use of deadly force investigations – from the investigation to the presentation to a grand jury.  I present trainings to our local law enforcement agencies and teach at the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training.
