Justice for All

Derek Obialo for Judge 2020

I'm seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the office of Judge of the 400th District Court, Fort Bend County, Texas. I'm committed to an administration of justice that is compassionate, with equity and justice accessible to all. Like you, I want to play an active role in making Fort Bend County, our state and country, a safer and better place to raise our children, run our businesses, and forge a future filled with unlimited promises where no one is left behind.

Compassion - Compassion in the administration of justice across the board. Preference for alternative diversionary measures than incarceration for non-violent offenders, and ensuring that civil litigants who before the court are treated with respect and matter disposed promptly

Equality – Treating everyone fairly and equally, with assurance that no one will be treated more severely because they are from a particular community

Accessibility - Improving citizens’ access to and experience in the courtroom and accommodation to pro se litigants

Efficiency - Efficient administration of the courtroom reducing time and expenses for litigants, with preference for firm setting so that practitioners before the court can better manage their time

If you share my vision, I urge you to join me in my campaign and help make it happen. Together we can make a meaningful difference for our families, community and country.
