Jim Pikl Seeks to Serve on the Texas 5th Court of Appeals
Collin County attorney Jim Pikl has announced his interest in election to place 12 on the Texas 5th Court of Appeals. He is the GOP candidate for the position having won primary and runoff elections to secure the nomination. The election is November 6.
Pikl comes to the race with a strong and diverse legal history. He is one of only 74 lawyers in Texas board certified in Consumer and Commercial Law, is considered an expert in Constitutional Law and legal ethics by the Texas legislature, and is the only candidate in his race that has handled over 500 trials and 70+ appeals in every area of law the Court of Appeals handles: civil, criminal, and family.
Pikl will also bring deep legal writing and reasoning skills to the court. He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles in distinguished law reviews, published multiple articles in other legal publications, is a frequent speaker at conferences teaching other lawyers the law, and has briefed 9 cases before the United States Supreme Court on civil rights issues.
Pikl has earned the endorsement of every Conservative organization in the state, including Texas Right to Life, Empower Texans, and Eagle Forum, and he earned the recommendation of the Dallas Morning News over an opponent who previously obtained that recommendation in his four previous runs for office. Pikl is also endorsed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, U.S. Congressmen Ed Foreman and Pete Sessions, Hon. Jim Moseley, Kelly Shackelford, Jonathan Saenz, Cathy Adams, Michael Quinn Sullivan, more than 60 GOP precinct chairs, and over 400 other elected officials and activists.
