NOTICE: My lead clerk Brandon Pettigrew received a wonderful promotion to another department in Dallas County in September, 2021. My second clerk Brianna Brown has been promoted to serve as lead clerk in another court, but is still available to help. If she cannot help you to your satisfaction, ask to speak to the Court Coordinator Leslie Richardson.

FLOOD UPDATE: I am pleased to report that as the only Courtroom flooded due to broken pipes from the infamous “February 2, 2021 Storm”, my courtroom was recarpeted thanks to the intervention of County Judge Jenkins on January 11, 2022. The courtroom has been repainted and the walls and benches restained. Currently waiting on the replacement of broken courtroom benches and to have the offices repainted and furniture updated that was damage in prior floods (three others to be exact). Computers are now back and partially functional as of the end of December 2021 and the printer has been replaced again.
