Dear Fort Bend County Residents,

Thank you for visiting my website. The support I have already received has been truly humbling. On August 27, 2015, I was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott as the Judge for the newly created 505th Judicial District Court in Fort Bend County, Texas. On November 8, 2016, I was elected by the voters of Fort Bend County for a four year term to continue as the Presiding Judge of the 505th.  I am running in the upcoming 2020 election, and I again ask for your support and vote.

The 505th District Court was created as a general jurisdiction court, but Fort Bend County has given this Court preference to family law cases to address the growing need of Fort Bend County residents. I was sworn in on September 1, 2015 and that same day, the 505th Judicial District Court began hearing and disposing of cases. The 505th Judicial District Court hears cases ranging from divorces containing complex property disputes to child custody cases, including cases involving Child Protective Services. The Court also hears adoptions cases and other family law matters.

In 2013, I was appointed by and sworn in by the Honorable Brenda G. Mullinix to serve as the Associate Judge of the 387th Judicial District Court and served in that position hearing family law matters until I took the bench in the 505th. This experience is crucial for maintaining an effective, efficient court at a time when judicial resources are limited.

I am honored to be part of the justice system. I have developed a reputation for being knowledgeable of the law, fair and firm. Above all, I strictly follow the law the way it was written by the Legislature, the Texas Constitution, and the United States Constitution rather than make it from the bench.

After you learn about my life experience, my legal education and background, my service to our community and my service within the Republican Party I think you will understand why I can confidently ask you for your vote.

Thank you for visiting my website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Judge David S. Perwin
