1 THE SAN ANTONIO DEFENDER THE SAN ANTONIO DEFENDER A Publication of The San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association MAY 2012 Special Edition Judicial Survey Results

2 Robert H. Featherston Editors Comments Judicial Survey Results Fellow SACDLA Members: As Editor for the Defender Magazine & as Secretary for the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, I am pleased to release the results of our most recent Judicial Survey! We are blessed here in Bexar County to have a splendid group of well-qualified individuals to be our elected Judges. Our Judicial Survey is not a popularity contest and should not be viewed in that light. Rather, it is a report to our members and the general public, generated by professionals most knowledgeable of our elected Judiciary s professional performance. This report covers six areas of observation: Does the Judge work hard? Is the Judge Punctual? Does the Judge follow the Law? Does the Judge have a good temperament? Does the Judge rule impartially? Do you approve of the Judge s performance? The Survey is not the result of a scientific sampling process because the entire attorney population of Bexar County, as reflected from the rolls of the State Bar of Texas, were asked to participate. Additionally participating attorneys were asked to only answer questions on Judges whose Courts they practice in. This Survey would not have happened but for the dedication, tenacity and adult supervision of Mark Stevens, a criminal defense attorney who is never too busy to tackle the difficult tasks! I close by stating that the Survey results reflect the best of our judicial system. The dedicated professionalism of our elected Judges, as viewed through the eyes of our practicing attorneys. Warmest Regards Robert H. Featherston Editor, Defender SPECIAL EDITION: MAY
