Last year, Governor Abbott appointed me as a Travis County District Judge. I am a judge, husband, and father who is seeking re-election to this new court.
I was born in Rio Vista, Texas, a family-oriented community, and graduated from the Texas Academy of Mathematics & Science before graduating from Yale University and the University of Chicago Law School, where I was President of the Federalist Society.
I moved to Austin and clerked for Don R. Willett (who is now on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals), where I learned about courts firsthand at Texas’s top court, the Texas Supreme Court. I then worked for the State’s top appellate lawyer, the Solicitor General, James Ho (now also on the Fifth Circuit), followed by a large law firm, Baker Botts LLP.
But, I have focused my career on defending your individual rights, working in both the non-profit world, where my clients included people such as Coach Joe Kennedy, and then at the state, where I pioneered a team that holds local government officials accountable to the law.
