December 5, 2013
Livingston attorney Tom Brown has announced he is a candidate for the Republican Party nomination to the position Polk County Court at Law judge in the March 4, 2014, primary election.
He is seeking the position now held by Judge Stephen Phillips. Other candidates who have filed to run for the office in the republican primary include John Wells.
Brown has practiced law in Livingston for the past 34 years and said his years of experience have prepared him for the duties of the County Court at Law.
"The County Court at Law is primarily a family law court which handles almost all of the domestic relations cases in Polk County," he said.
"During the past 34 years that I have practiced law in Polk County, I have represented clients in over 1200 family law cases ranging from simple uncontested divorces to multiparty jury trials concerning child custody and the division of multimillion dollar marital estates. I have also assisted many clients with adoption, CPS, child support and visitation cases."
In addition to family law, the County Court at Law is the primary court for probates, guardianships, mental health issues, ad valorem tax cases, eminent domain litigation, juvenile justice cases, misdemeanor criminal cases, general civil litigation and both civil and criminal appeals from the justice courts and a variety of administrative agencies. Brown has extensive, hands on experience in each of these areas.
In his 34 years as an attorney, he has handled over 6000 cases concerning virtually all types of litigation. He has appeared in state and federal trial and appeal courts throughout Texas, from the biggest cities to the most rural counties, but primarily in the courts of Polk County.
"This experience will allow me, from the first day, to provide effective and efficient service to the people of Polk County as the judge of the County Court at Law," he said.
