Assistant U.S. Attorney Positions

The United States Attorney's Office employs approximately 160 Assistant United States Attorneys. Slightly more than half of these attorneys work in the Houston office, but a growing number are assigned to our offices in Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Laredo, McAllen and Victoria. The office's attorneys bring a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, including service in private law firms, state prosecutor's offices, public defender's offices and the military (to name a few). Career prosecutors make up a significant percentage of the office's attorneys.

The United States Attorney's Office publicly advertises its attorney vacancies at http://www.justice.gov/careers/legal/attvacancies.html. Even when positions are not immediately available, however, the office welcomes expressions of interest from qualified candidates.

For more information, contact Mitch Neurock, Executive Assistant United States Attorney, at 713-567-9710. You can also send an email to attorneys.usatxs@usdoj.gov.

For basic consideration, applicants must possess a J.D. degree and be an active member of at least one bar (any jurisdiction). Preferred qualifications include strong academics, superior research and writing skills and a demonstrated commitment to professionalism, ethics, civility and public service. Candidates with fewer than three years of experience as a licensed attorney will typically be less competitive in the selection process.
