Rebeca Martinez LADY JUSTICE
Text by Laura Curtis | Photography by Wally Lafaiete
ntering Cadena-Reeves Justice Center and County courthouse can be an intimidating experience. You are met by security. Bags are put through the scanner as you prepare to walk through the metal detector. Quickly, you do a mental check, hoping you didn’t leave something ominous-looking in your bag or pocket. Of course, this particular day, the machine’s alarm sounded. Guilty! I got “the wand”. It seems the buckles on my shoes didn’t go over well with the metal detector. The steps of the well-heeled are heard click-clacking across the floor as voices mingle with the others’ congregating inside, all hoping to resolve some life conflict. My appointment with Justice Rebeca Martinez, running for reelection to Texas’ Fourth Court of Appeals, was at 1:00pm and people were hustling back to courtrooms and chambers. I had researched a bit and already admired her for her accomplishments and drive.
