Welcome, and thank you for visiting!  I am an Associate Judge of the 323rd District Court, with 32 years of experience in Child Welfare and Juvenile Law in Tarrant County. I hope you will hire me as the next District Judge of this Child Welfare/Juvenile Court.  Your decision should be about Kids - not Politics


About James C Teel

Who I Am

Fourth Generation Texan, Lifelong Resident of Tarrant County. 

Born in Fort Worth and raised in Haltom City, Texas, I spent 12 years in the Birdville Independent School District, graduating from Haltom High School in 1978. My wife of 29 years, Julie, is likewise a lifelong resident of Tarrant County, living in North Richland Hills, graduating from Richland High School in 1980.  My wife and I grew up knowing each other’s families while attending as members of Richland Hills Christian Church.  We have chosen to raise our family of three children, who are all now adults, in North Richland Hills.
