David M. Medina was born in Galveston, Texas and attended public schools throughout his education success. He was graduated from Texas State University at San Marcos and went on to receive his JD from the South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas.
During his career, Justice Medina worked at Cooper Industries as General Counsel. He also served as Judge on the 157th State District bench in Harris County, having been hand-picked by then-Governor George W. Bush. He was voted top jurist in Harris County by the Houston Bar Association, which is a high honor for any judge.
Medina rejoined Cooper Industries in 2000 as their General Counsel, but was once again asked to serve but this time as Governor Perry’s General counsel in 2004.
These days he remains active in his community, and serves on the board of organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, and finds the time to be involved in his son’s select baseball team.
He has been an adjunct professor at his alma mater, South Texas College of Law, teaching advanced civil trial litigation.
Justice Medina has been a reliable and avid Republican since the mid 1980s. His credentials as an attorney and a judge have been proclaimed by many of his colleagues as one of the most steadfast in fairness. His application of the law has not always been with the majority, but has been a truest to the letter of the law. In fact, in his dissent on the Texas Open Beaches Act, which limited the public’s beach access was well received and applauded by Attorney General Abbott.
Since 2006, Justice Medina has been an outstanding clear choice of a well qualified judge. He understands the law and applies it to the best conservative manner to protect the citizens of Texas. Join us in re-electing Justice Medina to the Texas Supreme Court.
