Satterberg attended Highline High School and  graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Political Science. During his undergraduate education at the University of Washington, Satterberg pledged Delta Upsilon Fraternity (Washington Chapter), class of 1982. He went on to receive the J.D. from the University of Washington School of Law, following which he began work in the King County Prosecutor's office. There he spent four years as a trial attorney in the Criminal Division before serving as Chief of Staff to then-Prosecutor Norm Maleng from 1990 to 2007.
In May 2007 King County Prosecutor Norm Maleng unexpectedly died of a heart attack. Satterberg was appointed by the King County Council to fill the position until a special election was held in November 2007. That November, Satterberg was elected to fill the remaining three years of Maleng's term. He subsequently won election to a full four-year term in 2010. A Republican, Satterberg has called for the King County Charter to be amended to make the office of Prosecutor nominally non-partisan.
Since 2008 Satterberg has served on the State of Washington Sentencing Guidelines Commission under appointment by Governor Christine Gregoire. He was the co-chairman, along with former Washington Attorney-General Rob McKenna, of the Washington Law Enforcement Group Against Identity Theft (LEGIT), a quasi-governmental organization that seeks to raise awareness about consumer data privacy issues in Washington.
