To the Citizens of Hidalgo County,
After over 30 years of practicing criminal and civil law in both the public and private sectors, I am seeking the Democratic nomination for the newly created County Court at Law Number 7 on March 6, 2012. My maturity, temperament, and experience in the law practice have prepared me well for the challenge and service I will provide as Judge.
Over the course of my legal experience, I have handled many types of cases, including the cases which pertain to the county courts at law by virtue of jurisdiction, as well as others in courts of higher and lower jurisdictions. I have been blessed and honored to have practiced before many justice municipal, county courts, county courts at law, probate courts, district courts, Thirteenth and Fourth Courts of Appeals, Texas Supreme Court and U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas. I have practiced in twenty-two different Texas counties handling criminal, juvenile, family, property, torts (personal injury, products and workers’ compensation), consumer, employment, administrative and civil rights law; many having been tried to jury verdicts.
As your judge, I will treat you with the professionalism and dignity that you deserve. I hope you too believe that I am deserving of this candidacy and join my campaign.
