Biography of Democratic Candidate BEVERLY ARMSTRONG:
Beverly Armstrong is a native of Beaumont, Texas and has been a resident of Houston, Texas since 1990. She holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Prairie View A&M University and a J.D. from South Texas College of Law.
Beverly has been a public servant most of her legal career. As a licensed attorney for 25 years, she began her career helping families navigate probate and guardianship issues and guiding families through bankruptcy proceedings. She discovered her passion for criminal justice when she accepted a position as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney in Polk County. After three years as Court Chief in Galveston County, she returned to Polk County as First Assistant. In total, Beverly has served as a Prosecutor for 16 years. Over the course of her prosecutorial career, Beverly has handled numerous serious cases such as murder, aggravated assault, robbery and child sexual assault amongst a number of other felonies.
Beverly believes the community no longer has faith, trust or respect for the judiciary. Her vision to restore the community’s belief in the justice system requires a “totality of the circumstances approach” to rulings and decisions. Every case is unique with different parties and circumstances. The impact on the community is different with every crime. Therefore, every ruling must be unique to address those issues. As Judge, Beverly’s goal is to tailor rulings and decisions to ensure justice for all parties involved in the case while addressing the needs and concerns of the community.
