Brittanye Morris zealously exemplifies a dedication to public service with her election as the 333rd District Court Judge in Harris County, Texas. Upon winning the election by the people of Harris county on November 3, 2020, she officially began her term of office and assumed this role on January 1, 2021. She has been actively campaigning for a re-election for another term in 2023 – demonstrating true dedication to justice within our community. She has worked with prestigious institutions such as The Office of Attorney General and Aldine Independent School District throughout her career in law.
Hailing from Houston, Brittanye’s parents modeled exceptional examples of public service and community engagement. Her mother, an educator, helped sharpen Brittanye’s understanding of the value of giving back to others; her father was a retired lieutenant with the Houston Police Department who taught his daughter about making positive changes for those around her.
Brittanye is an exemplary role model of dedication and hard work, having achieved a remarkable feat: graduating high school in three years while participating in the cheerleading squad and debate team. Following her hard work and dedication, Brittanye received admission to the University of Houston’s Political Science program with honors.
Upon recognizing her superior potential as an advocate, she moved on to Thurgood Marshall School of Law – a well-respected institution known for educating some of Texas’ best lawyers and judges. She was presented with an extraordinary honor during that time: representing their alma mater!
She is re-running for Judge in Harris County, eager to share her years of expertise and commitment with the court. If elected again, she will bring a new outlook to the courtroom and guarantee that every individual is treated fairly.
To ensure our courtroom justice system is more equitably accessible to all, Brittanye stepped forward in 2019 as a candidate for Judge. She experienced firsthand the lack of attention many litigants are given due to their status or wage level. Those same people have been wrongfully overlooked by elected judges they trusted to represent them fairly. She was determined to make substantial progress on this matter, using her candidacy to honor the right individuals from being forced into unfair decisions in the courtroom.
Brittanye has a long-standing commitment to improving the lives of citizens, championing efforts toward making legal services more accessible for those who seek them. As a judge, she ensures equal and fair representation for all in her court, regardless of their socio-economic or racial backgrounds.
She is also a firm believer in alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, allowing parties to resolve conflict outside of traditional litigation channels. Brittanye is committed to embodying the standards of equity, openness, and authenticity in her courtroom for any individual who stands before it. She understands that working together will ensure everyone can realize justice.
