Biography

Mike Schofield is in his second term in the Texas House of Representatives, where he represents Katy and part of Cypress in HD 132. Previously, he served for 11 years as an advisor to Governor Rick Perry.

Mike was named the “Freshman Legislator of the Year” by his House colleagues for his work during the 2015 legislative session, and was recognized as one of five outstanding freshmen in the House and Senate by the conservative newsletter Capitol Inside. He was also named a “Courageous Conservative” by the Texas Conservative Coalition.

During his first term, Mike passed a major piece of legislation backed by Governor Abbott to provide for a three-judge panel to hear all lawsuits involving school finance. This will ensure that one judge in Austin will no longer be able to single-handedly re-write the school finance system that effects our property taxes and our children’s education.

Mike also passed a bill with Senator Paul Bettencourt to prevent Texas’s Voter ID law from being thrown out in court as an unconstitutional “poll tax.”

Mike serves on the House Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence Committee and the Elections Committee, where he fought to protect Texans from frivolous lawsuits and to protect Texas elections from attempts to undermine our Voter ID law.

Mike is currently Senior Counsel at the law firm of Hoover Slovacek LLC, where his practice concentrates on defending Texas businesses from commercial and tort lawsuits. He has previously practiced law at the law firms of Baker Botts LLP, and Howrey & Simon, and with the legal department of Equiva Services LLC in Houston.
