The Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office is seeking a prosecutor to appear at a morning magistrate court, effective July 1, 2023.

Applicants should be licensed attorneys in good standing.  One year of job-related experience is required, with prior criminal law experience preferred.  

Attorneys will be expected to appear at 6 a.m. at a daily morning magistrate docket to argue for bond conditions and make recommendations for release on bond.  Work in the Intake Division is secondary to the magistrate docket and will be used to backfill available hours.  There are two positions that alternate days covering the docket 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays.

Pay begins at $79,331.20 annually with a full benefits package.  Offers subject to application/interview process, background check and drug test.

Fort Bend County is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and consistently ranks as one of the fastest growing.  Only thirty minutes away from downtown Houston, the office has that small-town feel while tackling the challenges of a bustling suburban metropolis. 

Interested applicants should e-mail a cover letter and resume to Intake Division Chief Laurel Ellisor at [email protected].
