John Devine began his career in Houston where he attended law school while working for Shell Oil and later an engineering firm, Brown & Root. After graduating from law school and meeting his wife, Nubia, Devine planned to start a family and open a law practice. In 1995, Devine was elected to the 190th Civil District Court.

One of the many important issues that courts face is fair treatment in the courtroom. Devine is known for his fair treatment of the parties and lawyers appearing in front of him and for his fierce fidelity of both the U.S. and Texas Constitutions and statutes.

Devine served eight years on the bench and compiled an impressive judicial record: his court ranked No. 1 in reducing the court’s case load; Devine’s decisions were reversed in appeals court less than any other judge at the time; during his tenure, he was named the “Best Republican Surprise” by the Houston Press in 1995, along with another up-and-coming Republican named George W. Bush; and he has also been named the “Judge of the Year” by police organizations and awarded the title of “Texas Size Hero” by Focus on the Family magazine.

Devine has also served our community in many official capacities, including District Judge, 190th District Court, 1995-2002; Special Judge, Harris County J.P. Courts, 2002-11; Harris County Juvenile Board; Harris County Juvenile Justice School Board; Board of Civil District Judges Mass Torts Committee; Board of Civil District Judges; Texas Association of State Judges; and American Judges Association.
