An experienced, dedicated, and fair judge for Texas.

 

“Brett’s respect for the Constitution and his understanding that judges say what the law is, not what they would like it to be, will serve the people of Texas well as he ascends to our highest court. I am grateful to Brett for his dedication to the Lone Star State and his unwavering commitment to the rule of law.”

– Governor Greg Abbott

 

Thank you for visiting my website. I am honored that Governor Greg Abbott has appointed me to serve you on the Supreme Court of Texas.

I have the right experience for this position: I have specialized in appeals for twenty years, I am Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law, and I proudly served on the Fourteenth Court of Appeals from 2012 to 2018. I began my legal career as a law clerk at the U.S. Supreme Court. Before taking the bench, I was a partner at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, and Super Lawyers named me one of the top 100 lawyers in Texas in 2012. Attorneys have consistently chosen me as one of the highest-rated Houston appellate judges in anonymous evaluation polls,* and my fellow Texas appellate lawyers recently elected me as Chair of the State Bar Appellate Section. Please visit my Bio page to learn more about my legal experience, community involvement, and personal background.

As a seventh-generation Texan and third-generation Eagle Scout, I take seriously my oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and Texas. My approach to each and every case—no matter the parties or issues—is to give everyone a respectful hearing and impartially decide the arguments they raise based on the law and the record. I am committed to the rule of law and work diligently to apply the laws made by your elected representatives consistently across the board, never rewriting those laws from the bench.

I appreciate your interest in my campaign. If you are able, please consider making a generous donation so that I have the resources needed to win my first election to the Supreme Court of Texas.

Sincerely,
