I am so excited to let you know that I am running for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 5, Place 2 in the upcoming Republican Primary.  Precinct 5 is my family's home.  It's our community, and we deserve to have a Judge who will prioritize the needs of our community with efficiency, understanding, and fairness.

I'm qualified.  I'm experienced.  I'm ready to put my heart and soul into this. Thanks for your support.

About the Court

In Texas, Justice of the Peace Courts are typically the busiest and most diverse courts.  They handle both civil and criminal cases, including small claims and administrative hearings.  Practically speaking, these are lawsuits over debts, evictions, car accidents, and property in which the amount in controversy is no more than $10,000.  The criminal workload consists of handling all Class C criminal misdemeanor complaints punishable by fine only, such as traffic citations, issuance of bad checks, and others. 

Harris County has 16 Justice of the Peace Courts.  Two Justices of the Peace (Place 1 and Place 2) are elected from each of the eight Constable Precincts in alternating election cycles.  The courthouse for Precinct 5, Place 2, is located at 16715 Clay Road; however, due to the recent flooding, the court is temporarily operating at 6127 Highway 6 North.


Working for YOU!
