One local attorney was recently quoted as saying that Atticus Gill “would bring honor to the bench” if he were to be elected to serve as our Republican Party’s nominee for County Criminal Court #2. To Gill, there is no higher compliment.
Tarrant County’s legal community respects Associate Judge Atticus Gill. And local Republicans trust him.
Atticus Gill currently serves as an Associate Judge for the City of Westworth Village and the Town of Westover Hills. His job duties include being on-call, 24-hours a day, to the police agencies in these communities for the purpose of reviewing and issuing search and arrest warrants. Additionally, Gill serves as a magistrate judge who arraigns criminal defendants and sets bail for those accused. He also presides over jury and bench trials in these jurisdictions.
Additionally, fellow attorneys elected Gill to the Tarrant County Bail Bond Board and he is currently serving his third term on the board. He is frequently called upon to provide continuing legal education to other attorneys and, most recently, he lectured at a gathering of Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans, an organization of lawyers devoted to helping indigent veterans resolve their legal issues on a pro-bono basis. Gill is also the current treasurer of the Downtown Republican Forum.
Gill is a constitutional conservative. Simply put, the United States Constitution, in Gill’s view, means what it says. Gill believes that the unprecedented and massive government overreach we see today is a direct result of all three branches of government abdicating their duty to protect the Constitution.
For over 20-years, Gill has been involved in and working to elect conservative candidates in legislative and judicial races.
Gill and his wife have three sons and have lived in Northeast Tarrant County for over 13-years. A life member of the National Rifle Association, Gill enjoys all things outdoors and enjoys hunting and fishing with his sons. Gill and his family are also active members in their Colleyville Church.
Convicted criminals ought to be punished; punishment ought to deter future criminal activity and, where possible, be rehabilitative in nature;
Agents of the government are not above the law and therefore must work within the law;
Judges and court staff will be respectful and work diligently to provide the highest level of service possible while being good stewards of taxpayer funds.
The 2014 recommended budget for County Criminal Court #2 is $500,129.00 which will make it the leanest running misdemeanor court in Tarrant County. Gill will continue this good stewardship of taxpayer dollars.
Knowledge of the Law
Gill has handled over 2,000 criminal cases with many dozens of jury trials;
Gill graduated 1st in his law school class at Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) and continues to be a student of criminal law;
Gill is frequently called on by fellow attorneys to provide insight into criminal law issues and to teach continuing legal education to attorneys.
