I believe in the rule of law and ensuring that each case which comes before the court is presided over with integrity and fairness. It would be an honor and privilege to serve on the bench
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 18, 2009
Donna Roth, an experienced civil trial lawyer, announced her candidacy for Judge of the 281st Civil District Court in Harris County.
A resident of Houston for 24 years, Roth graduated with honors from the South Texas College of Law. Roth began practicing law in November 1987 with a civil litigation firm in downtown Houston, becoming a partner at Thurlow, Roth and Garriga P.C. in January 1993. During her 22 years of practicing law in Harris County, she has settled hundreds of cases in mediation and through negotiation. She has extensive first chair jury trial experience in the types of cases that typically come before the 281st Civil District Court.
"I believe in the rule of law and ensuring that each case which comes before the court is presided over with integrity and fairness. It would be an honor and privilege to serve on the bench," says Roth, who for 14 years has practiced civil and family law as a private practitioner.
Hank Gilbert (D-Whitehouse), Democratic candidate for Texas Governor, said of Donna "Texas needs honest, committed, and experienced leaders, from the top of the ticket to the bottom. Donna is that kind of candidate. She will serve the citizens of Harris County with integrity and fairness."
Active in the community, Roth serves as a moot court/mock trial judge for students at South Texas College of Law and provides pro bono legal services to abused women. She also provided pro bono legal services for Hurricane Ike victims, and in 2008 volunteered her time to the Harris County Democratic Party as election day legal counsel.
Her spirit of volunteerism has been passed on to her daughter, Andrea, a junior at Baylor University. A member of the Harris County Young Democrats, the younger Roth serves as campaign treasurer for her mother's judicial campaign. Roth and her daughter live in Houston with their dog, Mercury.
