Erica Hughes is a Houston Lawyer and Judge Advocate for the National Guard that knows the Judicial System should be fair and balanced for all. She joined the judicial race because she has seen first hand how some judges do not administer justice for all. Some Judges seem close-minded and prejudiced towards defendants and attorneys. The disparity is made between individuals with low income and very little knowledge of their rights. The fairness is given to individuals based upon a financial status, connections, race, and other contributing factors that should not come into play in the judicial system. She believes that impartiality and an unfair justice system should not be tolerated in Harris County, Texas, or the United States. Ms. Hughes believes that the criminal justice system is a necessary and vital part of our society, but that it has lost its meaning and purposefulness behind unfair Judges that preside on the bench. She knows that she can help can help restore integrity, fairness, justice and honor for all.
Her dad was a non-commissioned officer in the U.S. Army, retired U.S. postal worker and her mother raised Erica. At a young age she was able to see the inequality towards individuals with low income, no political ties, or no knowledge of the legal system. She attended and graduated from Prairie View A&M University, where she continued to learn about more civil inequalities. Her time in Prairie View, Texas gave her a passion to help the disenfranchised. After undergrad she received a full scholarship to Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. Once she fulfilled her life long dream of becoming a lawyer in 2006, she remained in Houston, TX and has practiced law over 11 years.
