“I firmly believe in the rule of law as the foundation for all of our basic rights.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Thank you for allowing me to serve as judge of your Travis County Court at Law #1.  It is truly a privilege and an honor for me to be able to spend every work day as a part of the civil justice system.  I strive to become a better judge every day, and I would appreciate your vote as I run for re-election.

I was honored to be elected to the bench in November, 2014.  Since that time, I have handled hundreds of contested matters as well numerous civil jury trials (2015, 30 jury trials; 2016, 31 jury trials).  Both courts of law in Travis County handle both county court cases and district court cases on assignment.
