Dedication to Public Service
It has been my privilege to serve the citizens of our State for the past 25 years, first as a prosecutor for the Rockwall County Criminal District Attorney’s office and then as a Justice on the 5th Court of Appeals. I can think of no other calling that offers greater opportunity to effect positive change in our community. As a father of four, I have a vested interest in raising my children in an environment that is healthy, moral and safe.
As a prosecutor, I sought to provide a voice to victims who could not speak for themselves. I fought to keep our children and schools safe from predators. It was my daily goal to make our community a safer place. As a Justice, I strive to ensure that all parties have a fair and equal chance to have their cases heard according to the law and work hard to protect our judicial system from the corrosive effects of judicial activism.
