Southern District of Texas

About the District

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas is among the busiest in the nation. With more than 200 attorneys, our office serves more than nine million people in 43 counties from Houston to the Mexican border and typically prosecutes more federal criminal cases than most other districts. We have staffed offices in Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, Laredo, McAllen and Brownsville, as well as an unstaffed office in Victoria.
