Werner has had 78 cases come through the court and Matt Martindale has had 24 cases come through Randall County Court at Law #2.
Abbott, who is the self-proclaimed "Amarillo's Divorce Lawyer," is running on a platform of experience in his race. Abbott is facing Werner, an attorney with decades of family law experience, and Martindale, a country musician and attorney.
