U.S. Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D. (R-Alto) has endorsed Republican Darrell Avery in his bid to become the next Division A District Court Judge for Claiborne, Jackson and Bienville parishes.
“Darrell Avery is a good man who cares about his community and the Constitution, said Abraham. “ He will be a judge who stands with law enforcement to keep our communities safe. I encourage Jackson, Claiborne and Bienville parishes to elect him judge.”
Conservatives and Republicans are lining up behind Avery’s bid for judge. Abraham joins U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) and state Senator Stewart Cathey in endorsing Avery. Avery is seeking to fill the seat being vacated by Judge Jenifer Clason, who is retiring, in the Second Judicial District.
“I’ll be a judge who defends our constitutional rights and serves with honesty and integrity. That’s why Louisiana’s conservative leaders are rallying behind my campaign. Thank you, Congressman Abraham, for your support in my bid for judge,” Avery said.
Cassidy said previously, “Darrell Avery is a conservative who understands that judges interpret law, not write it from the bench. His experience, fair-mindedness, integrity and values make him an ideal choice for district judge, and I am proud to endorse him.”
Avery has practiced law for 38 years as an assistant district attorney, defense attorney and civil litigator primarily in the Second Judicial District. He built and maintains a private law practice in Jonesboro. Avery has received the Volunteer Lawyer’s Project Pro Bono Award for delivering high-quality legal service and has also received the Martindale Hubble Award for legal knowledge and ethics for 22 consecutive years.
