Now more than ever people have lost faith in the justice system. In such tumultuous times, we need dependability, honesty, and fairness from a system that was designed to protect us. We need to depend on something bigger than ourselves. To restore what is broken will require us all to not only fight for change but to BE THE CHANGE.
As managing attorney of The Clayton Law Firm, I’ve learned the only way to improve the criminal justice system is to be of service to it. I am a mother, an attorney, and a community organizer with a desire for justice. I fight relentlessly for my clients. As a prosecutor and now defense attorney I have cultivated collaborative working relationships throughout Tarrant County. My diverse experience is an ideal match to the criminal justice system and will bring immediate value to Tarrant County.
My life has had many twists and turns, and I have experienced what is most beautiful, problematic, hopeful, and broken in this country. I will carry these experiences with me to the bench and utilize them in my commitment to equality, transparency, and empathy. I will give a voice to the voiceless. I will judge fairly and with your support, WE will be a better society. WE will be the change!
As I campaign for this role, honesty, fairness, and integrity are my focal points. I believe my critical thinking, decision-making, and leadership abilities will demonstrate fair competencies to help you evaluate my credentials and secure your support by donation.
