Dore Bio: Margaret Dore v. David Leven Debate. Rematch in New York State.

Margaret K. Dore, Esq., MBA

Margaret Dore is a fourth generation lawyer in Washington State USA. Her father was a lawyer and a Democratic politician who ultimately served as Chief Justice of the Washington State Supreme Court. Her mother was a politician’s wife and a political activist in her own right, best known for her work to raise awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and also to help affected families and to promote medical research. Growing up, other families went camping. Dore’s family went campaigning.

Dore is a former Law Clerk to the Washington State Supreme Court and the Washington State Court of Appeals. She worked for a year with the United States Department of Justice and has been in private practice since 1990. Her published cases include Lawrence v. Lawrence, a family law case that received national recognition. Dore is also president of Choice Is an Illusion, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia.

Dore’s law practice has included guardianship, wills and probate. In that capacity, she has seen the terrible things that people do for money, especially in the inheritance context. US laws allowing assisted suicide and euthanasia also allow family members to actively participate in patient deaths, which can facilitate family member inheritances. This is a major reason for Dore’s opposition to legalizing assisted suicide and euthanasia.
