More about Steve Lingenbrink:
Steve, his wife Terri, and teenage daughters, Sarah and Rachel, reside in Bellevue, Washington.
In 1992, Steve joined the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club; a move that would profoundly change his life. For Steve, “service above self” is not just a motto, it’s a way of life.
Since 1992, Steve has served in every office at the club level. He fondly remembers his year as the Sergeant at Arms, as well as the honor of serving as President in 2004-2005. Steve has been recognized as Rotarian of the Month five times and also received Rotarian of the Year (2012).
He is a Rotary Academy Graduate, served as both an Assistant Governor (2006-2008) and the Executive Assistant District Governor (2008-2009) and District 5030 Governor (2012-13). Steve supports the RI Foundation as a Major Donor, Benefactor, Bequest Society and Paul Harris Society member.
Professionally, Steve is a partner in a successful law firm where 75% of the attorneys are Rotarians. He is a longtime member of the Board of the Washington State Association for Justice and a member of the American Association for Justice. In addition to many professional awards, he was recently awarded “Plaintiff Trial Lawyer of the Year” by the Washington State Defense Trial Lawyers Association, was awarded “Super Lawyer” status and was voted the “Best Lawyer in Bellevue” (2010). In addition to practicing law to protect the rights of those less powerful, Steve is active in helping the less fortunate in the world.
Rotary International matching grant projects have taken Steve, and his family, to Romania, Russia, Guatemala, Kenya, and Antigua/Barbuda. They have worked on clean water and sanitation projects, built and installed computer labs in schools, helped at orphanages, delivered dictionaries, and built/worked in health and dental clinics.
