Theresa Bui Creevy has been part of the Dallas and Collin County community for almost 50 years.
She works tirelessly to represent her clients in various legal matters in Dallas County, Collin County, Grayson County, Kaufman County, Rockwall County, Hunt County, Tarrant County, Denton County, and other counties across Texas.
Everyone wants a judge that will be fair, impartial, and follow the law. Every person deserves fairness and an opportunity to be fully heard. Everyone wants justice. When judges don't have time to listen and hear out the parties, it's not fair and it's not justice. When there are delays by the court, it's not fair and it's not justice. Justice delayed is justice denied. Political affiliation has no place in the courtroom. The judge's personal views and beliefs do not belong in the courtroom. It is never about the judge; it is always about the people or parties, their issues or disputes, and the rule of law.
Many people and lawyers come to court to have a judge (or jury) decide their case, whether it be in the lower county courts at law or district courts, or the appellate courts. Judges and Justices should be respectful of their time, as well as their attorney's time. But at times, some judges and justices will have a bad disposition or temperament. It is important for a judge or justice to be even-tempered and assess the situation properly. Judges and Justices should hear people and their lawyers fully before making a decision on their cases.
Out of law school, Theresa practiced law as an insurance defense attorney in Dallas as a trial lawyer. After 4 years, she left and started her own private law practice. She began representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. Theresa then added family law, business law, real estate law, probate law, CPS law, juvenile law, and criminal law to her practice. She has represented plaintiffs, defendants, fathers, mothers, children, and businesses. She has fought for and she has defended her clients in various cases and in various areas of law. She understands that these cases or disputes may be the most important thing to that plaintiff, defendant, company, business, father, mother, or child and that a ruling by a judge or justice could have devastating consequences. So it's important to elect a lawyer for Justice for the 5th District Court of Appeals who understands the law, knows the law, and will follow the law.
