Honorable Remeko Tranisha Edwards
Judge, Dallas County Criminal Court No. 7
Honorable Remeko Tranisha Edwards was born in Selma, Alabama. She spent the majority of her childhood in the suburbs of Dallas where she graduated from Lancaster High School in 1994. Judge Edwards began her college education at Prairie View A & M University; however, she received her Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1998. After graduation, she became an employee of Dallas County as a Juvenile Detention Officer, Court Coordinator, and Probation Officer until 2002.
Judge Edwards received her Juris Doctorate Degree in 2005 from Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas. Through much prayer, sacrifice, and support from her family and friends, Remeko became licensed to practice law in the State of Texas in November 2005. Ms. Edwards has always provided exceptional legal representation in her criminal (State & Federal) and family law practice.
The people Judge Edwards serves are always her top priority. She never backs down from tackling the toughest problems facing Dallas County’s families. As an attorney in private practice, she served hundreds of Dallas' most vulnerable children and families and she understands how the criminal justice system can have a major impact on the family.
While Judge Edwards quickly established a reputation as a sharp expert on legal issues, her proudest accomplishment is being a mother of two awesome boys.
Judge Edwards worships at Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time with family and friends.
As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (Dallas Alumnae Chapter) she engages in numerous community service activities regularly and thoroughly enjoys sharing her experience with others to encourage and support.
