New Leadership Delivering Justice for Our Community


     After receiving my B.A., M.B.A. and law degree from Tulane University I began my legal career in Houston, Texas in 1986. I actively represented litigants in federal and state trial and appellate courts for 30 years. I have been involved in several hundred cases filed in Harris County. In addition to my litigation experience, I represented clients in administrative hearings and alternative dispute resolution forums throughout Texas. I am also a certified mediator and currently serve as an Associate Judge.

      I was elected District Judge of the 183rd Criminal District Court in 2018 and presided over hundreds of cases. A representation of cases tried include Capital Murder, Murder, Aggravated Assault, Fraud, DWI and many others. I ran my court efficiently, was highly rated by those who appeared in my court and treated all with impartiality and respect.

     A judge must be an effective administrator and a fair-minded decision maker. I am confident that I am both. I have a solid understanding of the law and rules of evidence and will be able to effectively conduct appellate hearings. I also have a broad range of legal experience which will serve me well as an appellate court Justice.
