About The Judge

Judge Dedra Davis is presiding judge of the 270th District Court.  She is one of the illustrious 17 African American females elected in Harris County as judge on November 6, 2018.   


Since being elected, Judge Davis has successfully executed her campaign promises.  By the time the pandemic halted courthouse tours, in  March 2020,  over 1000 students had already visit her courtroom, as well as many participating in the Leadership program she created.   Judge Davis immediately put her words into action!

Judge Davis has been innovative and creative while on the bench.  A true public servant serving the public.   Judge Davis founded the group “Lawyer To Litigator.”  The group was formed as a vehicle to assist lawyers with procuring more trial experience, as well as, an avenue for litigants that are unable to afford a lawyer, to get free legal help from a licensed attorney.  


During the pandemic, Judge Davis has gallantly forged on and has presided over more than 40 virtual bench trials via Zoom.  Judge Davis refuses to allow the wheels of justice to slow down.   


Judge Davis is the recipient of numerous awards including being formerly named “Legal Executive of the Year,” receiving a “Dedra Davis’ Day” from a Houston Mayor, and a proclamation from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Judge Davis received her Bachelor’s Degree from Texas Tech University,  and her Doctor of Jurisprudence from South Texas College of Law.
