I have practiced as an associate, and later a partner of a midsized firm; operated my own small firm for nearly 10 years; moved my practice to the Dallas office of a large national firm; was recruited to be the managing partner and open the Dallas office of another national law firm; and I am currently a partner in one of Dallas' oldest law firms.

JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY




Like my friend and mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, I am an originalist who advocates judicial restraint and who believes in applying the law as it is - as it was written - and not as some would like it to be. I believe that judges must exhibit consistent and unwavering respect for the rule of law, and not legislate from the bench or attempt to rewrite laws and statutes. A judge should protect, defend, and interpret our laws without bias, not attempt to create law.



OTHER INFORMATION




Throughout my career, I have been a servant leader in the bar and the community. I have been a county bar president, and held or currently hold leadership positions in the Dallas Bar, the State Bar of Texas, and in national bar organizations. I have also served or still serve on various civic and charitable boards. I am a nationally-recognized legal scholar and writer, and serve as an adjunct law professor at 3 law schools - SMU, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. I have been a sought-after speaker and author on many legal subjects, including not just civil law but criminal law and evidence as well. I am regularly called upon to teach not only lawyers, but judges as well, and I'm a faculty member of the Texas Center for the Judiciary, the Appellate Judges Educational Institute, and the Federal Judicial Center. I have litigated cases in all six counties that comprise the Fifth Court of Appeals' jurisdiction, While leaving my successful private practice involves financial sacrifice, I believe in public service and I believe it should be a sacrifice. I am running because I believe in public service, and because protecting the rule of law is too important to entrust to those without the experience, qualifications, or judicial temperament to do the job.
