Judicial Philosophy (Max 250 words)
"I believe that the most important obligations of any judge or justice are to listen well, provide a forum where arguments receive a full hearing, and ultimately follow the laws of Texas, while ensuring that every proceeding of the court is conducted in a manner that makes both parties feel they have been treated fairly by the justice system."
