Meet Luis

My name is Luis Garza and I’m running for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 6, Place 2. I am happily married to my wife Diana, and together we raise our two daughters and two sons. I have 28 years of experience working in the courts. My goal is to ensure the court provides proper access to justice for all people, ensure the court is open and accessible to every person, and promote an effective administration, by improving rules, processes and procedures. 


As some may relate, growing up in the East End can sometimes be challenging. There was a lack of public knowledge for higher education. I also found myself consistently being targeted by police. Leading yet to another bill that seemed impossible to keep up with. I later learned I wasn’t the only one in the community falling victim to the same issues.


Deepening my desire to understand why this was happening, at the age of 23, I began to volunteer in the same courthouse I'm running for office today. That's when I got my first job as a court clerk. Since that time, I have devoted 28 years working on the courts helping my community. 



Eviction programs

Rent relief & Writ of Re-Entry. One of the jurisdictions of a J.P is to hear evictions and landlord / Tenant disputes. The state of Texas has programs in which tenants can gain rent relief to avoid an eviction. Luis vows to uphold the law and mediate without prejudice.

Occupational Driver’s License (ODL)

Drivers have different situations that led to losing their licences, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be able to get to work. By granting you an ODL, the court can get back on track to obtain your regular license.
