Bellville lawyer Conrad Day has announced that he is a candidate for District Judge, 155th Judicial District. The 155th Judicial District is comprised of Austin, Fayette, and Waller Counties, and governs disputes in major civil and felony criminal cases. Our current District Judge, Dan Beck, will retire from that position on December 31, 2010.

Mr. Day was born in Houston, Texas, on July 8, 1953. He has been married to Donna Russell Day for 35 years, and they have five children, ranging from 32 to 20 years of age. Mr. Day and his family have owned land in Austin County, near Shelby, for 50 years. Mr. Day and his wife attend the Brenham Church of Christ. He was formerly a deacon and elder of the Bellville Church of Christ for many years.

Mr. Day attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas for his preparatory and legal education, receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology, both in 1976. He went on to earn his Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1980.

That same year, Mr. Day was admitted to the State Bar of Texas. He is also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He has earned the distinction of becoming Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in family law, in recognition for his excellence and experience in the field. He primarily practices family and criminal litigation. Mr. Day is currently counsel to several major local businesses, including Cliff Jones, Inc., Walcik Construction, and Fayetteville Propane Co., Inc., to name a few.

A life-long Republican, Mr. Day began his support for the Grand Old Party by knocking on doors for Ronald Reagan in Lubbock, Texas, in 1980. He was a candidate for the 155th Judicial District Judgeship in 1990, when he won a contested Republican Primary and was later defeated by the current incumbent, Judge Beck. Mr. Day served as the Chairman of the Austin County Republican Party from 1991-1994.

Mr. Day has practiced law for 29 years, 25 of which have been in Bellville. He estimates that he has had more than 100 civil and criminal jury trials in his career, conducted primarily in Austin and contiguous counties.
