It HAPPENED. I won an award! I never win awards. I finally did. My mother always said, “patience is a virtue.” Well, I must be super virtuous.

And this is actually true! I was recently informed that I have been awarded the 2016 PUBLIC SECTOR ACHIEVEMENT AWARD by the University of Houston Law Center (my law school alma mater! Go Coogs!) Alumni Association in recognition of exceptional achievement in public service.

The ceremony is Saturday, April 2, 2016 right before the start of the University of Houston Law Center 40th Annual Gala & Auction.
As I always say, I love my job and the people I work with and the people I get to serve. Winning this award means the world to me and my family. I view it is as recognition that I am putting the voters, the litigants, and the hard working attorneys first, and providing a fair and efficient forum for them to have their day in court.
Thank you to the University of Houston Law Center Alumni Association and to my supporters from the bottom of my heart for this great honor.
