Janice received her bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in 2003 and her JD from the University of Houston Law Center in 2008. For nearly nine years, Janice has represented Houston-area clients in family cases not only at the trial level but also in the Courts of Appeals and at the Texas Supreme Court.

Raised by a single mother, Janice understands the impact that divorce can have on children. She believes that children need happy, healthy parents, not necessarily married parents.  Janice also understands that families can be complicated; what works for one family may not work for another. These philosophies have guided Janice in her practice as attorney and counselor for the past 9 years. Now Janice is ready to serve the families of Harris County from the bench with these principles in mind.

Janice is committed to justice and equality outside of the courtroom as well. Janice has held leadership positions in the Anti-Defamation League’s Glass Leadership Institute and she is a member of their Civil Rights Committee and Associate Board. For the past two years, Janice has traveled to Washington, D.C. to lobby on ADL’s behalf in support of increased voting rights protections and robust refugee programs.

At home, Janice has a dog named Taggart. For the past 13 years, Tag has served admirably as Janice’s chief of security and reliable walking partner. Thanks to Tag’s eternal optimism, he’s been named the official campaign mascot.
