Because of his extensive legal experience and judicial temperament, Justice Doss was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to serve on the Seventh Court of Appeals in 2019. The Court of Appeals consists of a 46-county region of the Texas Panhandle and South Plains, where Doss lives and has practiced law.
At the time of his appointment to the bench, Doss was a partner in the Amarillo-based firm of Mullin Hoard & Brown, LLP. Doss holds more than 18 years of experience personally handling civil and criminal legal matters in trial and appellate courts throughout Texas and the Southwestern United States.
Justice Doss learned judicial temperament and experience from his early days as a lawyer. Before entering private practice, Doss was honored to be asked to work on criminal and civil disputes and to draft court opinions as a briefing attorney to the Honorable Sam R. Cummings, United States District Judge for the Northern District of Texas.
Justice Doss is the only candidate to be board-certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Civil Appellate Law. Board certification in appeals is a rare distinction earned by less than 1% of Texas attorneys, and which only comes after extensive testing, as well as vetting by judges and peers. Doss has also earned recognition by his peers as a "Super Lawyer" and is top "A-V" rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
Justice Doss believes in the rule of law and in interpreting the law according to the plain language of the U.S. and Texas Constitutions. It is the job of the Legislature, not the Courts, to make law.
"As a Christian, I believe that Jesus died for the sins of humankind and that the Bible is the Word of God. God is the source of my strength and courage."
"I am proud to be the husband to Julie, and to be the father to Grace, Abby, and Matthew. My family is the source of my joy."
"As a family, we believe in the importance of service above self, and dedicate our time to the service of others through organizations such as the American Cancer Society and YWCA. Community service is the source of many lifelong friendships."
