Your next judge of the 187th District Court, should have years of experience practicing current Texas law. I have spent the last 15 ½ years practicing exclusively in state court utilizing Texas law. This is important because, the 187th District Court is a felony trial court that hears cases involving Texas law. The presiding judge should have substantial and current trial experience in state court.
The numerous and complex laws that are used in state court have changed dramatically over the last 18 years. More than 1700 bills that directly affect criminal justice have been passed by the Texas legislature in that time. When you consider experience think about quality of experience. When it comes to current state law, I have over 15 years of experience, versus my opponent who has six months.
My level and breadth of experience is why I have been entrusted to teach other lawyers. Law enforcement officers, Child Protective Service workers, and child advocates also seek my advice and counsel. I am also honored to be a member of the Bexar County Child Abuse Multi-Disciplinary Team and Bexar County Child Fatality Review Team.
Take a look at some articles and videos highlighting a few of the numerous trials I’ve handled during my career.
