I am honored to be running for the First Court of Appeals. I bring the perspective gained from 35 years of legal experience to ensure a balanced, knowledgeable, and hard-working judiciary. In its February endorsement, the Houston Chronicle noted, “Russell Lloyd won’t find anything on the 1st Court of Appeals that he hasn’t already handled at some point in his extensive career.”
My background as a civil district judge for 10 years, a prosecutor, and a trial and appellate advocate on both sides of the docket provides a solid foundation for service on the court. My experience and reputation was recognized with a nomination as a federal judge. I am a Vietnam veteran and served 20 years in the military as a JAG Officer and Paratrooper. My greatest source of pride is my family. I have been married 31 years and have 2 children, all attorneys.
I promise to work hard and make decisions based on the law, without regard to politics or personal views . I believe partisan politics has no place in the courtroom. I will uphold the integrity of our courts and fight for equal access to justice for every Texan. I appreciate your interest and ask for your vote.
