I am excited to announce that I am running as a Democrat for District Court Judge in Harris County

After 17 years as a trial attorney, I have gained the experience and temperament to serve as a judge.

My experience as a felony prosecutor, plaintiff’s attorney, and defense counsel over the years at both state and federal levels has instilled in me the knowledge and skills to serve the people of Harris County impartially and judiciously.

I look forward to connecting with you all on serving for the public good.
