As a prosecutor for Dallas County bringing cases on behalf of Child Protective Services, I understand what is required to maintain a massive docket of cases and the need to ensure that deadlines are met and cases are disposed of in a timely and efficient manner consistent with the rules; while also taking into consideration that these cases encompass people’s lives and livelihoods, and where appropriate compassion is required. This experience along with the decade of practice working in the private sector defending corporate clients makes me the perfect candidate for understanding the interests of both Petitioners and Defendants in litigation matters. The 193rd needs someone who is fair and impartial and who comprehends the requirements of litigants on both sides of the aisle.

The Right Candidate for the Right time
A born trial attorney, Bridgett N. Whitmore got her start trying cases while participating in the Texas high school mock trial competition as a student at the famed Booker T. Washington High School of the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX. While in her third year of law school, she tried her very first felony case defending a New Orleans juvenile client. She won that case, in front of a judge who at that time had not acquitted a defendant in two years. She continued her winning streak as an Assistant District Attorney for Dallas County from 1999- 2002, having won every jury trial during her tenure as an Assistant District Attorney. In 2002, Bridgett moved into private practice to work exclusively with a Fortune 500 company overseeing and managing their litigation in several states. Now, back at the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, Bridgett represents Child Protective Services in termination of parental rights cases.
A native of Dallas, Bridgett got her Bachelor’s degree from Yale University in 1995 and her law degree from Tulane University Law School in 1998. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Board member of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce and a member of St. Luke’s Methodist Church.
