    Judicial Philosophy

    I am proud to serve you on the Fourteenth Court of Appeals as a fair and impartial Judge who upholds the rule of law in our state and will never legislate from my seat on the bench.

    You elected me to apply the law as written and to never privilege one party over another due to personal preference. I have upheld my oath to you and am proud to serve every Texan who depends on the equal application of the law.

    I believe a judge’s core job is to deliver justice for all and give all parties the fair day in court they deserve. Regardless of personal beliefs or any partisan affiliation, I will always do my part to ensure justice is served in Texas and that our courts never become yet another political arena.

    At a time when so many worry that our judicial system is filled with politicians in robes, I am proud to be a Justice who applies the law equally and fairly, with competence and integrity. Without the rule of law, we risk losing many of the things that make Texas and America so remarkable. You can count on me to defend the rule of law and to treat everyone who comes before the Fourteenth Court of Appeals with fairness and dignity.
