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

Randall Slagle

Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2


Over the past 4 years, JP 2 has become one of the most efficient justice courts in Texas. We created the first paper-on-demand court in Travis County, we streamlined all processes, and created a system in which civil lawsuits can be filed online. JP 2 recently became the first justice court in the country to offer online dispute resolution in which members of the community can resolve their cases outside of the courtroom, avoiding the burden of securing transportation and taking time off of work. We will continue expanding online dispute resolution with the goal of greater access to justice.
