Dear Friends

After 28 years of practicing law, my family and I are proud to announce my election as the Democratic Candidate for Justice on the 4th Court of Appeals, Place 5. My legal practice has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. However, our court system must be fair and balanced, not driven by agenda or bias. The court must respect the decision of the jury and I believe that now is the time for me to step up and help improve our system of justice, which belongs to the people.

My life and legal background makes me uniquely qualified for this office. Our Courts of Appeal have both civil and criminal jurisdiction, and almost every appeal from a trial court is brought before this court. I have been Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1997, and my varied proficiency in the law, includes:

– real estate law (both transactional and litigation)
– personal injury law (mostly Plaintiff, but some defense)
– criminal law (from misdemeanors up to capital murder)
– family law
– probate law
– bankruptcy law

During my practice, I have had extensive trial and appellate court experience, and handled countless non-litigation legal matters for clients. In addition, I earned a BBA in Accounting, with High Honors, from UTSA, and was licensed as a CPA for 10 years. Because of my training and practice, I have the experience and ability to understand all of the legal and factual issues that come before the Fourth Court of Appeals.


I respectfully ask for your endorsement, your vote, and your support. The General Election in November will be hotly contested, and our work on that race has already started. With a Presidential election and many legislative races this election cycle, voter turnout will be high and we can't miss this opportunity to insure that the voice of the people be heard to make our Fourth Court of Appeals better for all.


We anticipate a very competitive race and will need help and money for advertising, signs, phone banks, block walker, and much more. I have been working hard and I'm asking for your help. Please take the time to donate here or contact my office to volunteer.


Thank you and I look forward to your support in making the overdue changes to improve the Fourth Court of Appeals.


With My Deepest regards,
David D. Towler


As District Clerk for the last 17 years, I’ve seen all of the lawyers who come through the Court here, and that includes those from Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas. Although David Towler practices primarily in our rural counties, his preparation, honesty, hard work and knowledge of the law is as good as any of the big city lawyers.

I’ve been a prosecutor for over ten years, and I’ve handled thousands of felony cases. Through the years, I’ve faced some of the best trial attorneys in the state. Among them, David Towler has proven to be a consummate professional. He advocates to protect his client’s rights, and in constantly researching legal authority to support his positions. Attorneys and judges of his caliber are absolutely crucial to a fair and effective judicial system.
