It is with a very full heart that I thank the many folks who have signed up to support my re-election campaign. Last week I filed to seek re-election for County Court at Law #3. Since then, we have raised over $10,000 and received support from hundreds of great Democrats, lawyers, community leaders, and friends. The support has been overwhelming and I truly appreciate all your encouragement and support.

Our work isn’t over. There are still three weeks left until the filing deadline and I need your help to show we are the consensus, community candidate for this court.

Will you join my public supporter list and encourage your friends and family to do the same?

For the last 23 years, the last three as your judge, it has been my privilege to serve Travis County. With your help, I will continue to make our courts more accessible and educate our community inside and outside the courtroom on criminal justice issues. It has been an honor to serve and ensure that this court is a court for all the people of Travis County.

Our goal is to release over 300 names from community leaders, lawyers, activists, and Travis County voters. Thank you again, for helping me kick-off my re-election campaign. I truly appreciate everything!

It’s Official

Yesterday, I filed for re-election to serve another four-year term as Judge of Travis County Court at Law #3. It has been my sincere honor to serve our community on the Travis County Criminal Bench since 2011.

Justice for All

It has been a sincere honor to serve as the presiding judge of County Court at Law #3 since January, 2011. I thank you for the opportunity to serve the Travis County community. I would like to take this time to ask for your support as I seek re-election in 2014. As your judge, I pledge to continue working diligently. I will take my experience and dedication to face new challenges, make tough decisions and improve the criminal justice system for every person who comes through my court.

Before my election to the Travis County bench in 2010, I spent 20 years as a Travis County prosecutor. As a trial court chief, I tried hundreds of jury trials and trial related matters, mentored young prosecutors starting out in the courts, taught classes at law enforcement academies, lectured at the UT Law School Defense Clinic, and spoke at CLE conferences. A duty I took seriously during my time at the Travis County Attorney’s Office was acting as a resource and teacher to university and law school students. As a trial court judge, I have continued to help law students and young attorneys on both sides of the bar become better legal advocates for their clients and our community.
