Judge Kimberly Fitzpatrick
Judge of the 342nd District Court
Kimberly Fitzpatrick was elected as Judge of the 342nd District Court in November 2018. In her first eighteen months, she worked tirelessly to reduce the pending cases on her docket and create a timely and welcoming court that is impartial and fair. With the support of her incredible team, the 342nd court has tripled the number of cases tried versus the previous years. Additionally, she has worked to utilize technology to conduct hearings via Skype, Facebook Live and other applications in an effort to reduce costs and increase convenience and accessibility. Of the civil courts, the 342nd court consistently disposes of the most cases each month and has the lowest number of pending cases on its docket. Kimberly and her husband Ryan reside in Mansfield with their two daughters. Together, they work to support a number of local charities, including Mission Arlington, Big Brother & Big Sisters of Arlington, Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, Mansfield Cares, YMCA and Jr League of Arlington.
