For the past 11 years, I’ve had the honor of serving you on  the 3rd Court of Appeals. During that time, I have always aimed to  apply the law with integrity, balance and a deep respect for the legislative  process that creates the laws I apply. As we begin the 2012 re-election  campaign, I hope I can count on your support.

This year the race is more important than ever.  The 3rd Court of Appeals, which  covers 24 central and west Texas counties, plays a huge role in the welfare of  our great state because Austin, the seat of Texas government, falls into its  district.  Therefore, in addition to  hearing the appeals in civil and criminal cases that significantly impact our  everyday business and personal lives, the 3rd Court is also called on to rule  in all appeals involving our state government and state-wide elected officials.

Judge David PuryearWhat are just a few examples of the kinds of appeals we rule on?

  • Private lawsuits, such as contract disputes and negligence cases
  • Family issues such as child custody suits, divorces and parental rights
  • Criminal cases, such as murders, burglaries, thefts
  • Utility rate questions, Public Utility Commission cases
  • State agency issues

As you can see, the decisions of the 3rd Court  have a very real and significant impact on the daily lives of people like you  and me.

My long tenure on this court, combined with 8 years of  service as a County Court at Law Judge, and 9 years as a prosecutor means I bring a wealth of experience and knowledge of both civil and criminal cases to  the table.  In my time on the Court, I  have consistently ranked in the top 10 most productive justices in the state,  and have earned the reputation as a hard-working fair and balanced judge.

I believe my role is to provide consistency and  predictability in our legal system by applying the laws of Texas as they have  been written by our legislature.  An  unpredictable legal system is the end result of activist judges applying their  own personal sense of justice.

I am  asking for and would appreciate your early support. Please join my team today by visiting the JOIN US page and adding your name to our team.

I  look forward to visiting with you and thank you so very much.


Justice David Puryear
