Daughter of an Indian immigrant, a seasoned trial lawyer, becomes the first Indian judge in the state of Texas and
Harris County Civil County Court at Law No. 4’s new judge, Manpreet Kaur Monica Singh, is seated in the position.
While filing her nomination, she tweeted, “As a native Houstonian, it is my ambition to represent my community that values diversity and servant leadership.” When she won the race in November 2022, her goal became a reality.
“Say hi to your new judge-elect of Harris County Civil Court at Law no. 4 and also the first Sikh female judge in the US,” she tweeted after her victory.
Her father immigrated to the US as an architect in the early 1970s acquiring a green card. Being a bachelor, he followed work wherever regardless of where it would take him. He worked in Miami, New Jersey, Atlanta, and Dallas before finally putting down roots in Houston.
Despite the fact that he has encountered clear prejudice on several occasions, she is all too familiar with systems of inequality and is sympathetic to the sufferings.
She has been married to Mandeep Singh for 19 years and they live in Bellaire with their two boys.
Corporate Soldiers gives her a heartfelt Congratulations on the victory.
May she build a great legacy!
