Explain why you would make a fair and impartial Justice of the Peace?

Sylvia Holmes

Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3


I have practiced almost exclusively in JP courts for the past 9 years as an attorney representing clients with civil and criminal matters.  My work as a legal aid attorney for The University of Texas at Austin takes me into justice courts on a weekly basis, which has given me a unique understanding of the complexities facing a court of mixed jurisdictions.  My office works to assist individuals with common traffic tickets, renting disputes, consumer fraud, and a wide range of contract claims. I am licensed in state and federal court, and am also a member of the Texas Bar College.
