Similar to a recent appointment made by President Obama, Governor Perry
has also a Hispanic Female to the State's Highest Civil Court. Perry
Eva Guzman, to be the first Hispanic female to the Texas Supreme Court. While as a
Houston Criminal Lawyer I would not be arguing before this court since
the highest court for Criminal appeals in our state is the
Texas Criminal Court of Appeals, it still is a historic moment.
Judge Guzman's family history is an inspiration for young woman of
all ethnicities, races. She is one one of seven children and the daughter
of Mexican immigrants that only had an elementary school education. Her
mother worked mostly as a cleaning woman. Professionally she has been
a judge in Houston since 1999. She attended
South Texas College of Law.
