Meet Cadine

 Judge Cadine Ferguson-Brown earned her law degree with High Honors from the School of Legal Studies, University of Wolverhampton, Wolverhampton, England. She was admitted to the Washington State Bar Association in 2013 and to the New York State Bar Association in 2007. She also holds a Master of Education, specializing in Leadership in Educational Organizations from American Intercontinental University.

Judge Ferguson-Brown was first appointed by Governor Inslee in 2022 to the Mason County Superior Court, where she became known for her fair, even-handed and well- considered decisions. Prior to this, she was the Mason County Superior Court Commissioner, presiding over a variety of matters including dissolutions with and without children, involuntary commitment for those experiencing mental health crisis, both adult and minor guardianships, and adult family treatment courts.

In December 2023, Judge Ferguson-Brown was appointed to the Kitsap County Superior Court bench, where she continues to ensure that the Superior Court systems are more accessible and responsive to the needs of the community through her deep commitment to ensuring that everyone who appears before her is met with an understanding ear, and experiences justice. She will continue to champion efforts to protect and defend every person’s legal and constitutional rights.

Those who have worked with Judge Ferguson-Brown echo the sentiments of Governor Inslee, when he stated “Cadine Ferguson-Brown is an extraordinary judge and is well prepared to serve the Kitsap County community in this role. I’m pleased that she will bring her integrity, work ethic, courage and judicial skills to the Kitsap County Superior Court bench.

Judge Ferguson-Brown brings to the bench her extraordinary record of leadership on access to justice for all. As a practicing attorney, she volunteered with Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Washington State Moderate Means program to offer free or low-cost representation. She hosted and volunteered at legal clinics for military members at the Naval Air Station, Bangor and Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island, and for members at the Oak Harbor Senior Citizens center. In 2014, she received the Mark Hansen Pro Bono Award. She is currently active in the Superior Court Judges Association, as a commissioned member of the Minority and Justice Commission and is a member of the Certified Professional Guardianship and Conservatorship Board.

Judge Ferguson-Brown also values community service and has an extensive record of volunteering both in her legal community and the community at large. From a very early age, Judge Ferguson-Brown embraced the idea that caring for one’s community is essential and throughout her life she has lived this, recognizing that “a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” Throughout the years, she has volunteered with various local, statewide, and international community outreach programs such as, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, NAACP, Loren Miller Bar Association, Rotary, Agape, Dream Jamaica, Big Brother Big Sister, New Day Ministries, Plates of Hope, and the YMCA Mock Trials, to name a few.

At home, Judge Ferguson-Brown, with her husband, Oliver – a retired military servicemember, manages a very active and service-oriented household. Their boys are usually serving with them when serving their community and are involved in various extra-curricular activities. They enjoy cooking together and reading as a family and can be seen on any given Sunday afternoon, playing board or video games or engaging in
Karaoke, a newfound pastime for their family.
