Crime is out of control! The duties of the District Attorney's office are to seek justice. The U.S. and Texas Constitution along with all statutes must be followed. Violating these standards jeopardizes individual freedoms and hinders cases from proper punishment of the actual offender. Victims' rights will always be important. I am a veteran of the United States Army. I attended military police training at Ft McClellan, Alabama. Later, I attended canine patrol dog handler at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. I am proud to be an American. I am very concerned as I watch the dwindling of our constitution and its protections. As the District Attorney I will require the constitution to be followed by each Assistant District Attorney. Justice will prevail.
I was also a patrol officer in Williamsburg, Virginia. I will work hard with each municipality and police agency to educate and address a strong working relationship. Good communication will provide team work and better case preparation for prosecution of trials. Well investigated cases usually encourage defense attorneys to negotiate appropriate punishment, a saving to the tax payer's dollar.
I am a successful trial lawyer and represent the accused of crimes from felony murder cases down to misdemeanor crimes. I have won more cases than lost. I am the owner of my firm, The Law Office of Kathy A. Lowthorp, for approximately 13 1/2 years. I interned for a year in the Tarrant County District Attorney office family violence unit. My defense work will allow me to see all sides. My trial success will help me see the weaknesses and better prepare the Assistant District Attorneys for their success.
I believe in the importance of education. I have an undergraduate degree in business from Dallas Baptist University and my law degree is from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now known as Texas A&M). I will encourage education and employment to help prevent future crimes.
Family is important. I am a proud mother of four children who all attended Arlington High School. I also have four small grandchildren. My son is a graduate from the University of Texas at Arlington. I have a daughter who is currently a senior at the University of Wyoming studying Wildlife Management. My youngest daughter is a freshman at Texas Tech studying nutrition, and my oldest daughter is a full time mom. Family involvement is important to individual success and rehabilitation.
