Judge Holly Williamson was sworn in January 1, 2009 as Harris County Justice of the
Peace. She also serves as Co-Presiding Judge of the 16 Harris County Justice of the
Peace Courts. Before being elected to the bench, Judge Williamson practiced law for
over a decade in the Federal Courts, State District Courts, and JP Courts.
With 13 professional clerks and a budget of over one million dollars, Judge Williamson
handles more than 20,000 cases a year including: civil and criminal; jury and bench
trails; traffic cases; hot check cases; evictions; probable cause hearings; and truancy
Judge Williamson truly enjoys serving in the “People’s Court” and strives to make a
difference in the lives of many, particularly the kids through the Stay in School
Program. The Stay in School Program emphasizes early intervention to attain its
goals: to increase student attendance in Harris County schools, to reduce the
number of students dropping out of high school, to reduce juvenile crime, and to
identify students and parents in need of social services related to anti-social and
criminal behavior. Judge Williamson passionately believes that kids must complete
their education, their most valuable asset.
Throughout the past twenty five years, Holly has treasured the personal time she has
been able to spend serving and being involved in community organizations dear to her
heart such as: The Bridge, Rotary, PISD Education Foundation, the YMCA and the Rose,
just to name a few. But her volunteerism doesn’t end there; Holly volunteers her time
professionally in many organizations and serves as a volunteer instructor for the Texas
Justice Court Training Center, teaching Justices of the Peace all across the state.
