About Brian

Brian Bolton's career, as both a prosecutor and as a criminal defense lawyer with two decades of criminal law practice handling thousands of cases, has provided him with the knowledge and experience to effectively serve as Judge of Tarrant County Criminal Court No. 9. 

A sixth-generation Texan and proud Eagle Scout, Brian attended Texas A&M University, where he was in the Corps of Cadets and the Texas Army National Guard, before graduating from the University of Memphis and later Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law). 

During Law School, he had the privilege of interning for the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office. After receiving his law degree, Brian went on to serve as a "tough-on-crime" trial prosecutor at the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, where he ultimately earned the position of Chief Prosecutor. He represented the State of Texas in countless misdemeanor and felony criminal offenses.

Brian later worked as a criminal defense attorney throughout North Texas and beyond, providing top-notch legal services for nearly every type of criminal offense, practicing in both State and Federal courts. He has additionally served as appointed counsel for those impoverished individuals who have found themselves on the wrong side of the law.


Brian's experiences practicing criminal law on both sides of the courtroom have provided him with the most important attribute a judge can possess: the ability to even-handedly view evidence fairly and impartially. Brian has been a repeated recipient of Texas Lawyers Magazine "Rising Stars" Award in Criminal Law.

Brian emphatically believes that justice demands fairness and impartiality. A judge's role is to ensure the court protects the safety of the community, while also upholding core constitutional safeguards afforded to an accused individual. He believes a judge's role is to follow the law as written and to never legislate from the bench, because judicial activism has no place in a criminal courtroom.

In addition to his extensive legal accomplishments, Brian is an active leader in his community, having served as an Assistant Scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts of America and as a youth soccer coach at the Arlington/Mansfield YMCA. He is currently an active supporter of the Arlington High School Band Booster Program. Brian is a lifelong Republican with a commitment to conservative ideologies and principles.

 Brian has been married to his high school sweetheart Jennifer, an elementary school teacher, for 23 years. They reside in Arlington with their two daughters and attend Central Bible Church in Fort Worth. 

The election for Tarrant County Criminal Court No. 9. will take place on March 1, 2022.
