Appointed to the bench in 2016 by the Tarrant County Commissioners Court and elected in 2018, Brooke serves as Judge of Tarrant County Probate Court No. 2. As Judge, she has brought more money back to the citizens of Tarrant County than any other Probate Judge in Texas, all while increasing judicial efficiency. Brooke hears matters pertaining to decedent's estates, guardianship, mental health, and litigation matters touching those areas. She has tried hundreds of bench and jury trials and continues to hear matters remotely to assist our citizens. She manages a staff of 12 and thousands of cases each year.
An award-winning attorney, Brooke's litigation experience provided her the cornerstones for her judicial career - to strictly interpret the law, never legislate from the bench, and apply the law equally to all parties. As an attorney, her practice consisted of litigation matters involving probate, wrongful death and survival claims, real estate, and construction matters. She tried cases for both plaintiffs and defendants. For her work, Brooke was consistently voted by her peers as a "Fort Worth Top Attorney" by Fort Worth, Texas, Magazine and a "Texas Rising Star" by Texas Lawyer. In 2016, she was named "40 Under 40" by the Fort Worth Business Press.
Brooke managed her law firms' title companies and was an escrow agent with Alamo Title. Closing both commercial and residential transactions, Brooke gained a unique insight to the real estate industry in Texas. She often spoke to real estate associations and agencies on the most efficient ways to transfer title for properties that had been in one family for decades. As a Director on the Board of the Texas Young Lawyers Association, Brooke contributed to several pamphlets on real estate matters including the Tenants' Rights Handbook. She also advised landlords, investors, and other escrow agents.
