How will you improve the services of the Justice of the Peace?

Christopher David

Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2


With my past experience representing both civil and criminal defendants, I’ve seen both innocent and guilty, right and wrong. I’ve seen folks found at the wrong place or time brought into the judicial system unprepared and scared of what was happening around them. This experience has created an empathy and desire in me to make this process understandable for those brought into this system for both civil and criminal issues. It is lost on some judges that deciding an issue before the court for many is potentially life altering and the most pressing issue in this person’s life at that time.
