I Appreciate Your Support

Thank you for visiting my webpage.  I am Joel Perez and I ask for your support for election to the 437th Criminal Court Bench of Bexar County, Texas. 

I have over 34 years of experience as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney in Bexar County.  I have represented many individuals who have been charged with violating our criminal laws. 

The fair and equitable administration of justice is a matter for which I am very passionate.  It is important for a judge to be impartial and even tempered when listening to prosecutors and defense attorneys in a criminal prosecution case. 

My many years of experience has given me the understanding and compassion to administer justice in a manner that is fair to all sides.

Equity is also of paramount importance to me.  I believe all individuals, regardless of economic or social status, stand before the law equally.
