Experience and Service
Associate Judge Beth Poulos comes from a family where she is the 3rd child of 8 children of George and Patricia Poulos of Midland, Michigan. Beth’s father died in a car accident when she was 17 years old, leaving her mother to care for 8 children at home with little money for college for Beth. After she graduated from high school, Beth enlisted in the United States Army as a Private First Class and was sent to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, for boot camp. After boot camp, she remained at Fort Jackson as Headquarters Company Clerk for the next year and a half and was in charge of tracking troops.
Ms. Beth Poulos
Associate Judge of 324th District Court
Beth's first position as an attorney in Texas was with Hill Heard Gilstrap Goetz & Webster in Arlington, where she worked primarily in the insurance defense section of the firm. As an associate with Hill Heard, she spent a lot of time in the library researching and writing trial briefs. “Courtroom action is rare for associates in large firms since the partners in the firm generally appear when necessary,” and it was through the few family law cases that came her way that she first realized how much she enjoyed litigation and being in the courtroom. In 1993 she opened her solo practice and shared an office with Bonnie Cade, an Arlington family lawyer whose office was next door to Hill Gilstrap on Abram Street in Arlington.

Family law disputes are handled in open courts, like any other civil or criminal case. Texas also has the unique option of permitting juries to determine disputed facts issues in family cases such as values of property, characterization of community or separate property, and child custody.
“I am asking for voters of Tarrant County to elect me and give me the opportunity to continue to serve in the 324th District Court in the capacity as the District Court Judge. My election will allow me to use my extensive experience and knowledge of the law to focus on matters that greatly affect families, and particularly the children, in my community.”
