Assistant Criminal District Attorney

Gregg County Criminal District Attorney

The Gregg County District Attorney’s Office presents a fast paced team oriented atmosphere where you will get to hone your trial skills with over 100 years of trial experience to lean on. Prosecutors are given autonomy to work all levels of crimes from misdemeanors up to Murder. Each court is comprised of at least two prosecutors, and in that setting the ability to entrench yourself in the criminal process from start to finish. A Gregg County prosecutor argues fourth amendment issues, negotiates with defense attorneys, and ultimately seeks to do the right thing every time. With the freedom to soar and a full support system below you, it’s hard to think of a better place to spread your wings.
We also, offer a position for the attorney that doesn’t want to be in the courtroom and prefers to write about the law and argue before a panel of three.

The salary range for this position will vary on qualifications and experience 70K – 90K to start. Additionally, Gregg County provides an exceptional benefits package to all employees that includes health insurance, vision and dental coverage, optional life insurance, and an unrivaled retirement participation in the Texas District and County Retirement Program. The GCDA’s office pays for all State licensing dues and costs associated with CLE, including membership to TDCAA.

At the GCDA’s office you get to work with a team of fun, effervescent individuals, willing to take on the hard yards when necessary, and laugh through the rest of the day. Folks in the office understand family is a priority, and a good work-life balance matters. Located in Longview, Texas, the county seat, you get to experience the glory of the East Texas Pines in a place big enough to have good food, but small enough to still be called a town. Wine festivals, art walks, dog parks, The Texas Shakespeare Festival, and the Belcher Center at LeTourneau University are a few of the offerings from this place we like to call home.
