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. During her tenure, she presided over four departments, hearing a variety of complex civil and criminal law matters.

Prior to her appointments, she was the Mason County Superior Court Commissioner where she presided over matters in family law, guardianship, mental health, probate, and the Therapeutic courts. Before transitioning to the bench, Judge Ferguson-Brown owned and managed her own law offices, first in New York, and later in Washington when she relocated here, with her family, due to her husband’s military career. Her practice handled matters in Dependency, Family, and Immigration law. She was also Of Counsel to Hall & Miller, PS, where she completed discovery depositions in Workers Compensation matters.

Judge Ferguson-Brown values access to justice for all and was a pro bono attorney with Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and a low bono attorney through the Moderate Means program. She hosted and volunteered at legal clinics for military members at the Naval Air Station, Bangor and Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island. In addition, she has volunteered with various local community outreach programs such as, New Day Ministries and Plates of Hope, and has served as a big sister in the Big Brother Big Sister organization, and as a judge and rater with the YMCA Mock Trial. Judge Ferguson-Brown also served as a past board member of Agapé Unlimited, a Bremerton-based non-profit outpatient substance use disorder treatment program, and as an organizer for the Dream Jamaica organization - a mentorship program for high school students in Jamaica. She continues to volunteer with the Bremerton NAACP, the Mason County League of Women Voters, and the Shelton Rotary.

At home, she enjoys cooking and reading with her family, and can often be seen playing board or video games with her boys or engaging in Karaoke, a newfound pastime for her family.
