McKinney, Thursday, May 4th, 2017 – Attorney Tom Nowak announced today his intention to run as a Republican Candidate for Justice on the 5th Court of Appeals.
Nowak described his campaign and his vision to protect the Court of Appeals from those who would seek to undermine the efforts of conservative justice. The 5th Court of Appeals is tasked with hearing appeals on cases in a 6 county area which includes Grayson, Collin, Dallas, Rockwall, Hunt, and Kaufman Counties. It represents almost 4 million people and is one of the most active and efficient courts in the state. The Court considers thousands of appeals each year from both criminal and civil courts in the district.
“It’s a privilege to run for this office. Hopefully, I can give back to the country and state that has given my family so much. I am running to make sure our conservative values and business-friendly legal structure continue working for our citizens. There are those who wish to change the culture of the court by copying practices from places like California and New York, but I intend to protect our proven justice system. We need someone who has the vigor, determination, and experience to take on activist judges. I am asking for your vote and your help.”
It can be safely said that Tom Nowak is living the true “American Dream” after his humble beginnings as an immigrant to Texas from Communist Poland. Growing up in Dallas County, Nowak went on to become a skilled prosecutor and defense attorney. Tom Nowak has the experience and ability to lead as a justice as he is also the only candidate who is Board Certified in Criminal Law. Tom is a member of the Air Force Reserves as a Captain with the Judge Advocate and is also currently in private practice as a defense attorney in the Dallas area.
Having years of experience arguing cases before the highest courts in the land, nationally recognized attorney Christopher Kratovil, knows Tom’s history and experience make him the best candidate to take on the rigors of a multi-county race and succeed as Justice. “Tom has the knowledge, integrity, and experience that would be an asset on the 5th. I’m excited to give Tom Nowak my full support as we reach out to like-minded individuals across North Texas. Having the right people in positions as important as Justice on the 5th Court of Appeals is important, not only for our justice system, but our future as well. Tom is the proven choice for this position and I ask everyone to support him!”
Tom Nowak lives in McKinney, Texas with Hon. Christine Adamson Nowak, his wife of 10 years, and their two children Ali and Aleks. Both Tom and Christine are graduates of Texas A&M University and Baylor Law School.
