FOR LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE 2020

Klint James McKay

A Lifetime Of Dedicated Service

Dedicated to Justice

I left home when I was 15, and was still able to complete undergraduate, law and business degrees without financial help; I have demonstrated throughout my life that I can persevere through adversity.

I was an American Arbitration Association arbitrator for twenty years and was judge pro tempore for many years in Inglewood, Los Angeles and Van Nuys courts.

I ran a law firm for fourteen years, prosecuted doctors and other health care professionals, and have been an administrative judge for over five years.

All of these demonstrate judicial temperament and discretion, and an ability to work with people of all kinds in a wide variety of situations.

I was appointed statewide liaison between the California Department of Justice and the Board of Psychology, the Emergency Medical Services Authority, and the Acupuncture Board. I also wrote the Department of Justice practice manual for the Emergency Medical Services Authority.

Why I'm Running

I am running for Superior Court judge because I enjoy the art of discerning truth from the evidence presented. That is why I am now an Administrative Law Judge.

I enjoy the process of justice and having the ability to ensure that the right result is determined and implemented in a fair and impartial manner.

The opportunity to do that is my primary motivation for seeking an appointment as a Superior Court judge.

I am intelligent, a natural leader, and have the ability to analyze complex problems and determine the best solution. People, including employees and clients, have often confided in me and many still remain in contact years after our formal association ended.

I am a good listener, but am not afraid to be honest, even when that is difficult. I am a tough but fair negotiator, and for that reason, have been consulted by colleagues and former colleagues in various legal and personal matters.
