Assistant District Attorney

The San Patricio County District Attorney’s Office is seeking to hire an experienced Assistant District Attorney. 

Starting salary is between $100,000 and $135,000 depending on experience. We are seeking a self-motivated and hardworking attorney with at least 5 years of felony trial experience, preferably in prosecuting serious violent crimes and sex offenses.

Our office only handles adult felony offenders. Our staff is currently comprised of 3 ADAs and 1 appellate attorney. San Patricio County is a mid-sized county, experiencing rapid growth.  As such, we have a busy, fast-moving docket. 

This position will be responsible for prosecuting serious felonies and sex offenses. Essential functions, aside from the preparation of cases for trial, include interacting with victims and their families, and the ability to handle the expectations of veteran judges. Our office intakes from multiple law enforcement agencies so the ability to work with law enforcement personnel is necessary.

Our office values teamwork and we are looking for someone who embraces teamwork and the ultimate goal of seeking justice for victims of crime and the community at large.  

Sinton is located just 30 minutes from the beaches of Rockport, Port Aransas, and Padre Island and 30 minutes from the nightlife of Corpus Christi, but still has a small town feel.

Just an hour and a half from San Antonio and three hours from Houston, Sinton is centrally located in the Coastal Bend.

In addition to the many benefits, our office provides a vehicle and a gas card to all attorneys for their work commute. Our county also offers excellent healthcare, retirement, and life insurance.
