Colette Davies for Judge: Experience Matters

Colette Davies, Candidate for District Court Judge
My name is Colette Davies, and I am asking for your vote to become the first judge in Yellowstone County’s Thirteenth District Court-Department 7.

As a former Billings judge and a practicing attorney for over 20 years, I know the impact a judge has on the lives of Montanans. People come to the court for many of life’s most difficult situations, including criminal charges, civil cases and family law. They need—and deserve—a judge with the experience to bring fair resolution to these matters.

I am ready to step into the role of judge. I have extensive courtroom experience as a trial attorney handling complex civil cases and as a judge presiding over criminal matters. Most importantly, the success and safety of Yellowstone County matter to me, as this is my lifetime home and the place where my husband and I are raising our family.

As your next judge, I am committed to:

  • Upholding the Montana and U.S. Constitutions
  • Working to ensure meaningful access to justice for all citizens
  • Improving case efficiency in Montana’s busiest and most backlogged district court
  • Supporting a fully-funded criminal justice system that protects our community and rehabilitates offenders

I invite you to learn more about me, pledge your support, and vote in the upcoming Yellowstone County election.

My thanks,

Vote Colette Davies for District Court Judge
