Bexar County Civil District Court Staff Attorney’s Office – San Antonio, TX
What did you like most about your job?
I absolutely love everyone I work with, the other interns, the Staff Attorneys themselves, and the Judges. Everyone communicates well with each other. The Staff Attorneys always welcome questions, always willing to teach us, and have open doors for us.
What was the most surprising thing you learned at your job?
I have learned so many things at the Staff Attorney’s Office. The most surprising probably would be how every Judge has their own nuances of how they run their courtrooms and how they want the documents to be.
How do you think this experience has helped you in your career path?
Our office is not open to the public still because of COVID but we started Zoom meetings with the Pro Se individuals and instead of the Pro Se’s coming into the court for hearings to finalize their divorces, name changes, etc. we are able to present their orders to the Judge on their behalf. While I am not sure what it was like pre-COVID, I believe this is an efficient way to help the public while keeping everyone safe.
