Facebook: Merendino for Liberty County Court at Law Judge; www.merendinoforjudge.com/
How many people do you know have been affected by divorce or child custody? This is your opportunity to have a vote in shaping the court that may determine the outcome for our families.
If you want a judge that values a commitment to the letter of the law in every case, fair and impartial rulings; self-reliance; civic commitment; distrust of government interference into people’s lives; and reverence for the sanctity of human life, vote for Michelle Mangum-Merendino.
Throughout my twenty-four-year career, my work ethic and diverse experience have prepared me for service as a judge. I have been married to my husband, Jared, for more than a quarter-century. He is a twenty-five-year veteran math teacher at Hardin High School. We are lifelong residents of Hardin and Liberty Counties. Our three wonderful children are Dani (28) Kendall (25) and Isabella (14).
After graduating from Hull-Daisetta at 16, I worked my way through college, earning a Bachelor of Science in accounting from the University of Houston, Clear Lake. I worked as a tax manager for Clear Channel prior to graduating Summa Cum Laude (top 1%) from South Texas College of Law. I was editor of the Law Review and worked on preparing federal and state appeals.
My practice includes litigation in the following areas: juvenile, family, C.P.S., criminal defense, mental health, will and estate probates, torts, real estate, and bankruptcy. I have tried cases in 18 Texas counties. I have served as president and vice president of the Liberty County Bar Association.
Any trial lawyer will tell you that the best judges are those who are the best listeners. I will listen to all of the evidence, and strictly follow the law as it is written in a consistent, fair, and impartial way.
