Billy Ray Stubblefield
Billy Ray Stubblefield, Presiding Judge of the Third Administrative Judicial Region, is the product of four pioneer Williamson County families. He is a proud sixth-generation Texan.
His paternal forebears arrived in Virginia in the mid seventeenth century and went on to fight in the French and Indian War, American Revolutionary War, and fought in the Virginia militia with General Washington at Yorktown. The judge’s great-great grandfather William Stubblefield narrowly escaped death in the War of 1812 at the Fort Mims massacre. His great-grandfather Stephen Stubblefield fought in the Mississippi Rifle Volunteers under Zachary Taylor in the U.S.-Mexican War of 1846-48. He arrived in Williamson County in the late 1860s as a refugee.
On his mother’s side of the family, three grandfathers (William Bradford, Miles Standish and Edward Doty) arrived in Massachusetts in the early seventeenth century at Plymouth, rather than Jamestown, Virginia. The family later pioneered the settlement of Vermont and ultimately migrated to Troy, Missouri. There they met Moses and Stephen Austin and came to Texas with the Austin Colony in the 1820s. They fought in the War for Independence from Mexico and the Civil War.
Judge Stubblefield obtained his public education from Georgetown I.S.D. and received his undergraduate degree from Southwestern University, where he majored in history. He received the Southwestern Scholar designation in 1971, and was awarded a teaching certificate. After attempting to teach history in high school in San Antonio for two years, he went to the University of Texas Law School where he received a Juris Doctorate. While there he was a member of Delta Theta Phi law fraternity. He was licensed to practice law in January of 1976, just in time to run for County Attorney.
He was elected to four consecutive four-year terms as County Attorney from 1977 to 1992 (to date serving longer than any County Attorney in Williamson County’s history). In November of 1992, he was elected to the bench and became judge of the 26th District Court on January 1, 1993. He was elected without opposition five more times. He retired from the elected bench in October of 2014.
As District Judge, he heard civil cases without limit to the amount of dispute, felony adult cases, and heard family law matters and juvenile cases of all classes. In 2000, Judge Stubblefield was elected by his colleagues to serve as Local Administrative Judge and resigned from that position in February 2010 so that he could assume the duties of Presiding Judge of the Third Administrative Judicial Region, a position to which he was appointed by then-Governor Rick Perry. He was re-appointed by Governor Perry in 2014, and was so-honored by Governor Abbott in 2018. The Region covers 27 counties with an area the size of West Virginia and approximately 3.5 million residents. It is the Heart of Texas.
Judge Stubblefield is an enthusiastic member of the Georgetown Rotary Club (Past President), a founding member and former Board member of the Williamson County Law Enforcement Association, founding and former member of the Board of Directors of the Williamson County Crisis Center (now Hope Alliance). He believes that domestic violence is anathema to healthy, happy children. He served on the founding Board of Directors of the Georgetown Project, a child advocacy organization, and served as Chair for one year. He previously served on the Board of Directors of the Palace Theater in Georgetown. He currently serves on the Board of the Veterans’ Suicide Prevention Channel and the Central Texas Philharmonic. The judge co-chaired the Williamson County Sesquicentennial Committee from 1997 to 1999 with Irene Varan. He was a founder of the Civil Section of the Texas District and County Attorneys’ Association. He is a member of the Williamson County Bar Association and the Judicial Section of the State Bar of Texas. He is admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. The judge was inducted as a Fellow of the College of the State Bar in January of 1996. Judge Stubblefield is married to Neta, his beloved and long-suffering wife since August 20, 1977.
