A Sponsored Message from Judge Omar Mason

When I ran for Judge two years ago, I ran on a platform of ensuring that justice for all was a reality for all, and I have upheld that promise. I am proud of my record of efficiency and competency in presiding over legal matters of great consequence, from domestic abuse protective order hearings to complex community property partition trials. I am now moving from the Domestic docket to the Civil docket. Since being elected, I have run an open and fair courtroom and an efficient docket. I will bring that same work ethic and my continued and relentless commitment to justice and fairness to the Civil docket.
