Chief Justice, Fourth Court of Appeals

The Fourth Court of Appeals reviews orders and judgments of both civil and criminal cases issued by county and district courts in 32 Texas counties.

Seven Justices sit on the Fourth Court of Appeals, including the Chief Justice. This Court serves counties located in South Texas and the Texas Hill Country, including: Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Brooks, Dimmit, Duval, Edwards, Frio, Gillespie, Guadalupe, Jim Hogg, Jim Wells, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Kinney, La Salle, Mason, Maverick, McMullen, Medina, Menard, Real, Starr, Sutton, Uvalde, Val Verde, Webb, Wilson, Zapata, and Zavala.

Former Judge Renée Yanta served as a District Court Judge for seven years.  She handled over 3000+ cases while a Judge, from car wreck cases to complex business disputes to all forms of family law litigation, including difficult abuse and neglect cases. But, hands down, her favorite legal proceeding was when she had the blessing to preside over an adoption, creating another Forever Family.
