We administer and implement County policies fairly and with the knowledge that the citizens of Montgomery County are the ultimate beneficiaries of our legal services.

We are here to serve the people of Montgomery County by providing important legal services to County policymakers, to aggressively defend the County and its officials and employees against civil liability, and to represent the interests of the State of Texas in Juvenile Court and mental commitment proceedings, and to protect the safety and wellbeing of children in CPS and Family Violence Protective Order proceedings.
