Oscar M. Telfair III
For Fort Bend County Court at Law No.2
I am Oscar Telfair III and I am running for Judge for County Court At Law No. 2 in Fort Bend County. As an Ohio State University and Howard University graduate, I understood where my purpose lied very early in my career. After 35 years of practicing law, I realized my passion for people has expanded my vision and advocacy for Justice. As a faithful member of Brentwood Church, where I have served on the deacon and trustee board, it has further consecrated my spiritual beliefs that service to many leads to greatness and I am now willing to serve my community on a larger scale as Judge of County Court At Law No. 2.
In my experience I have seen multiple gaps within the justice system between the charge and the conviction stages of prosecution. As judge of the Court At Law No. 2, I am committed to address the inequality of sentencing as well as the failure to utilize rehabilitative and mental health programs where justified. As a hybrid court, that deals in civil litigation as well, I want to ensure that civil litigants will have equal access to the Court At Law No. 2.
I live by the motto of Fair and Impartial Justice for All and will serve Fort Bend County as a Judge who will not base judgement on one’s gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, or economic status but will afford every citizen their constitutional right to a fair and equal trial.
