A Message from Justice Brett Busby
Thank you for visiting my website. I was appointed to the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in June 2012 and elected to a six-year term in November 2012.
I have the right experience for this position: I have specialized in appeals for eighteen years, and I am Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law. I began my legal career as a law clerk at the U.S. Supreme Court, and I was a partner at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP before taking the bench. Super Lawyers named me one of the top 100 lawyers in Texas in 2012.
The attorneys in my district chose me as the best candidate for this position in three anonymous polls: I won the State Bar of Texas Judicial Poll and the Houston Bar Association Preference Poll, and I was overwhelmingly rated the most "well qualified" candidate in this race in the Houston Bar Association Qualification Poll.*
Please visit my Bio page to learn more about my legal experience, community involvement, and personal background.
The Fourteenth Court of Appeals hears appeals of civil, criminal, and family law cases from Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Waller, and Washington Counties. I appreciate your interest, and I am honored to serve you on this Court.
