Get to Know Judge Mayfield

In 2015, Governor Greg Abbott appointed me to serve in the 165th Civil District Court, and I humbly ask for your vote in 2016 to continue that service. I am an experienced trial judge, having served you in the county courts, trying over ninety cases to a jury and hundreds of bench trials. I am also a former partner in a Houston civil defense firm, where I had an active statewide trial and appellate practice. As a native Houstonian and part of the first generation in my family to attend college, I am devoted to the community and to mentoring young women and men and am faithful to causes that provide such opportunity. 

Thank you for your confidence in electing me as your judge twice before, and I ask for your sustained vote and continued confidence in 2016.
