Justice Peter M. Kelly
First Court of Appeals, Houston, Texas


Justice Peter Kelly of the 1st District Court of Appeals in Houston is our choice … Kelly’s expert grasp of the particular nuances of how the top court works, and where the opportunities will be for a new justice to influence the law in Texas, gives us the most confidence in urging Democratic voters to choose him. Even in our brief meeting, he demonstrated a persuasive manner that will be more likely to attract justices, even the deeply conservative Republicans now on the court, to give his views a hearing.”
