I want to thank the voters of my district for electing me to serve as a Justice on the First Court of Appeals with a special thanks to everyone who helped with the campaign.
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 will continue to work hard and make decisions based on the law, without regard to politics or personal views. I will uphold the integrity of our courts and fight for equal access to justice for every Texan. I appreciate your interest and thank you for visiting my website.
