An advocate for children in the courtroom and the classroom, Judge Andy Mireles worked tirelessly to keep students on the right track.
Paul Andrew Mireles was born April 3, 1950 in Lockhart, Texas and was one of six children of working class parents. An avid car racing fan, he learned early in his life that education was the ticket to success.
Mireles graduated from St. John's Seminary and briefly considered becoming a priest. But while earning a bachelor's degree in psychology at St. Mary's University, a professor suggested that he consider becoming a lawyer.
