Thanks for joining!

Justice Margaret "Meg" Poissant

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to serve the people of Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Harris, Waller, and Washington Counties as your Justice on the 14th Court of Appeals for the past six years. I am running for re-election and need your support.

​I understand the importance of community. In the past, as an attorney, I provided pro bono legal representation to many who would otherwise have none. I believe public service is also essential to maintaining a fair justice system, and I will always be committed to ensuring Texans equal justice.

Justices should make unbiased decisions and apply the law equally to all parties. It takes integrity and experience to render impartial, well-reasoned opinions. My tenure on the Bench, as well as my prior experience representing clients for 33 years in both civil and criminal cases and appeals, has given me the ability to apply the law fairly.
