Theresa Bui Creevy has been part of the Collin County community for more than 20 years.
She works tirelessly to represent her clients in various legal matters in Collin County and across Texas.
Everyone wants a judge that will be fair, impartial, and follow the law. Every person deserves fairness and an opportunity to be fully heard. Everyone wants justice. When judges don't have time to listen and hear out the parties, it's not fair and it's not justice. When there are delays by the court, it's not fair and it's not justice. Justice delayed is justice denied. Political affiliation has no place in the courtroom. The judge's personal views and beliefs do not belong in the courtroom. It is never about the judge; it is always about the people or parties, their issues or disputes, and the rule of law.
Many come to court to have a judge or jury decide their case. Judges should be respectful of their time, as well as their attorney's time. But at times, some judges will have a bad disposition or temperament. It is important for a judge to be even-tempered and assess the situation properly.
Out of law school, Theresa practiced law as an insurance defense attorney. After 4 years, she left and started her own private law practice. Theresa then added family law and criminal law to her practice. She has represented plaintiffs, defendants, fathers, mothers, children, business. She has fought for and she has defended her clients in various cases. She understands that these cases or disputes may be the most important thing to that plaintiff, defendant, business, father, mother, or child. That a ruling by a judge could have devastating consequences. So it's important to elect a judge who understands the law, knows the law, will follow the law, in all these areas of law.
