The City of Oregon City welcomes Amy Lindgren as its Municipal Court’s new presiding judge on November 1, 2021. Lindgren was sworn-in by Oregon City Commission Wednesday, November 3, 2021.
Lindgren has spent the last 17 years in public service. She first served as a deputy district attorney for Clackamas County. In 2013, she transitioned to prosecuting crimes and advising police departments for various municipalities in Clackamas County. In 2018, Lindgren was sworn in as the judge for the City of St. Helens Municipal Court. Since January, she has served as the Gladstone Municipal Court judge.
“I’ve focused most of my career in Clackamas County because of the local attorneys and the professionalism shared among the local bar and bench,” said Lindgren.
Lindgren replaces the Honorable Laraine McNiece who served as the Municipal Court judge for more than 20 years. McNiece diligently served the Oregon City Community, and the City extends its gratitude for her years of honorable service.
Lindgren looks forward to continuing Judge McNiece’s work dealing with juvenile and adult traffic offenders. “The traffic education program previously offered by Oregon City provides a wonderful opportunity to educate first time offenders and new drivers about the risks – and oftentimes fatal – consequences of distracted driving and risky driving behaviors,” said Lindgren. Lindgren is excited to serve in her new role as the Municipal Court judge and continue her service to the Oregon City community.
