Gilbert Garcia grew up in San Antonio, Texas and has lived in Montgomery County for the past 30 years.

Gilbert worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Bastrop, Texas where he was responsible for prosecuting offenses of all types. As a lead trial prosecutor, Gilbert gained valuable trial skills in prosecuting serious offenses including murder, DWI and drug cases.

After he received his Texas State Bar license in 1978, Gilbert was commissioned as a Captain in the United States Army where he served as legal counsel in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps.

As a member of the JAG Corps, Gilbert gained valuable trial experience which included Drug, Sex, Robbery and other major criminal cases.

Then in 1983, Gilbert moved to Montgomery County and worked as an Assistant County Attorney for Civil Affairs and later as Civil Section Chief. He founded Garcia & Garcia, Attorneys at Law, P.C. in 1983 and The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm in 2008. He has been located on the courthouse square for the last 29 years.
