Prior to concluding her career with the King County Prosecutor's Office Marilyn Brenneman chaired the Fraud Division/Special Operations Unit where she was responsible for the vertical development and prosecution of complex crimes, high profile cases and organized or sophisticated criminal activity, as well as the supervision of other prosecutors in Special Operations Unit.  A 1979 graduate of the University of Washington School of Law, Ms. Brenneman spent three decades as a career prosecutor.  During that time she was officially recognized for her work by the FBI, King County Police, Seattle Police, Redmond Police, USDA, Washington State Fisheries and citizen organizations. She has served on the faculty of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and the National College of District Attorneys and has created and taught multiple courses to prosecutors devoted to the development of complex cases. Three cases vertically handled by Ms. Brenneman are  featured in books written by local crime author Ann Rule.  In 2011, the Seattle City Council issued a proclamation acknowledging her extensive and invaluable public service across her career.
