Rusk Attorney Frank Dobrovolny announces for 369th District Court

Frank Dobrovolny and family. Frank Dobrovolny and family. Rusk attorney and Navy veteran Frank Dobrovolny has officially announced his candidacy to fill the vacant position of 369th District Court Judge which came about due to the retirement of long-time Judge Bascom Bentley III in April. The 369th Judicial District includes the counties of Anderson, Cherokee and Leon. Dobrovolny said that he believes it’s critical we elect judges who share our conservative values and work ethic.

“In East Texas, we expect our judges to be hardworking, firm, and fair; just like our values,” Dobrovolny said. “I’ve spent my career, both at home and abroad, protecting our families and defending the Constitution and the freedoms we enjoy because of it. That’s why I believe it is vital that we elect principled conservatives to the bench who will strictly interpret and apply the law as written, and never veer into politics by legislating from the bench.”

Dobrovolny has practiced in East Texas for the past ten years with a wide range of experience across the legal field, including criminal law, civil law, business law, family law, probate, and even Constitutional law. Prior to beginning his legal career, Dobrovolny was a sailor in the United States Navy on board the nuclear ballistic missile submarine, U.S.S. Rhode Island SSBN 740 where he held a secret security clearance.

When he is not in the courtroom, Dobrovolny is actively involved in the community. He has been elected to the Board of Trustees of Rusk I.S.D, and he is now serving or has served in the past on the board of directors or in leadership positions with The Good Samaritan, Rusk State Hospital Ethics Review Board, OSR Water Supply Corporation, the Cherokee County Bar Association, and the Nan Travis Towers, a non-profit which provides housing for disabled members of the community. He is also currently the Treasurer of the Cherokee County Republican Party. Dobrovolny said his community involvement is one of the main reasons he decided to run for Judge.

“Being a good judge is about much more than just being a good lawyer,” Dobrovolny concluded. “The cities and towns of this district are wonderful places to live, work and raise families, and I believe that I have a duty to give back and serve the people of this community who have blessed me with so much. The events of my life have prepared me for this moment, and my pledge to all of the citizens of Anderson, Cherokee and Leon Counties is to provide them with a courtroom that is free from bias and favoritism – one that honors the rule of law and the Constitution.”

Dobrovolny is a graduate of Texas A&M University and the South Texas College of Law in Houston. He and his wife, Kristi, are raising their 4 daughters in Rusk where they are members of First Baptist Church. The Republican Primary Election will be held on March 6 of next year.
