Paul Meadowbrook

Fair, Experienced and Committed to Justice

Judicial goals:

  • Increase access to justice and reduce costs by implementing effective judicial settlement conferences pioneered by Oregon’s federal courts, which reduce litigants’ and taxpayers’ costs and free up clogged dockets.
  • Judge each case on its own merits, maintain personal integrity, set aside personal agendas, uphold rule of law, treat each litigant and lawyer with dignity and respect.
  • Remember that real lives are involved in every case; in criminal cases help victims heal by acknowledging when sentencing criminals the pain borne by victims; in family law cases by keeping the best interests of children uppermost.
  • Reduce prison revolving doors by starting bench probation program that expands use of groups, community resources and volunteers to monitor, supervise and assist persons on probation obtain employment, pay restitution, maintain sobriety and abstain from crime.
