Joe Pool

In 1955 I was born in Dallas and moved to Falls Church Virginia in 1962. My Father was Congressman-at-Large Joe Pool who died in office in 1968. My mother was Elizabth Pool who died in a fire 5 months after my father died at Hobby Airport. I went to boarding school at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and graduated in 1973. I graduated from U.T. with a B.A. in government in 1977. I graduated from U.T. Law School in 1980 and became a Texas lawyer that same year. I practiced primarily civil law for the next 20 years. In 2000 I was chosen to be the General Counsel of Dripping Springs Water Supply Corporation and served in that position until 2005. I returned to my general civil practice with some criminal representations. I ran in 2022 as a democrat for the 428th Judicial District Judge position. I unseated a four term GOP incumbent and have been serving as a judge since.

I coached women’s, men’s and children’s soccer teams in Austin and Dripping Springs for over 15 years without compensation other than the joy of coaching. I am one of the founders of the Austin Municipal Soccer League. I have provided pro bono legal services to the Austin School of Film over the last 20 years. Every year I provide pro bono legal services to those who cannot afford an attorney. Most of these services have been provided to women or women’s organizations. In 2017 I sued President Trump to stop him from establishing a theocracy in Afghanistan with our tax dollars where women were oppressed and men could have four wives. One of the reasons I filed this suit was to educate Congress and the Executive Branch that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”. 1st Amendment.

Help Joe Pool get elected to the Texas Supreme Court to get your constitutional rights back.
