About

Who I Am

I'm a board certified appellate lawyer with over 12 years of appellate experience, over 10 years of judicial experience, and nearly 8 years of experience working on staff at the 4th Court of Appeals in San Antonio. In 2018, I became the first appellate court attorney (judge or staff) to become board certified in both Civil Appellate Law and Criminal Appellate Law, the two areas of appeals decided by Texas courts of appeals. I've also worked for the Supreme Court of Texas and the Court of Criminal Appeals.

Working for the Texas judiciary, I've drafted roughly 450 judicial opinions and, overall, I've worked on over 1,000 appellate matters.  I'm currently a statewide director of the State Bar, an agency in the Texas Judicial Branch. I'm a frequent CLE presenter on appellate issues and have published 20+ law review and other articles, one of which was quoted by the Supreme Court of Texas in 2014.

I'd be honored to have your support in this election.

Why I'm Running

Why I'm Running

I'm running to help the court of appeals issue the best possible decisions, as fast as possible. Simply put, Better Decisions, Faster. The court of appeals has made great progress getting back on track after the COVID shutdowns and ransomeware attack in 2020. I'm running to further contribute to the court's progress toward issuing clear, concise, and correct judicial opinions, as fast as possible.

While working on staff at the court of appeals, I implemented systems to improve efficiency and quickly produce opinion drafts in
4-5 hours for simple cases, 4-5 days for appeals of average complexity, and 4-5 weeks for the most complex appeals. As a justice on the court of appeals, I would institute systems to ensure that all who come before the court receive Better Decisions, Faster.

Judcial Philosophy

CONSERVATIVE Judicial Philosophy

The Rule of Law
Maintaining the Rule of Law requires faithfully adhering to the democratically enacted laws that govern our state, including the Texas and U.S. Constitutions. Judges should not legislate from the bench. Legislative changes should be made in the Legislative Branch, not in the courts.
