My experience as an appellate Justice and trial Judge in civil and criminal cases makes me the best qualified person for the Fourth Court. I presided over more than 100 trials, was a U.S. Marine JAG Lawyer, and 2002 Defense Counsel of the Year.
Advances in DNA testing, intoxilyzer alcohol breath testing, DWI blood draws, and drug testing protect each citizen's right to a fair trial guaranteed in our federal and state constitutions. These developments aid those citizens who are indigent and most vulnerable in our society. These positive changes strengthen public trust and confidence in our justice system.
My highest priority is to ensure that the correct legal result is reached in each case that comes before the court. Justices must follow the law and apply it equally to all citizens. To protect the rights of all citizens and ensure all citizens are treated fairly regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status, justice requires equal application of our laws.
