Biography

Gilbert Garcia was born in 1953 and grew up in San Antonio, Texas. He has lived in Montgomery County for over 30 years, where he has raised a family and built a successful law firm.

Gilbert attended Central Catholic High School. He went on to earn an Army ROTC scholarship and attended the University of Notre Dame, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Government in 1975. After graduation, Gilbert headed back to Texas to attend the University of Texas Law School and received his Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1978.

While in law school and just after graduation from law school, 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. Gilbert proudly served his country as a prosecutor and defense attorney in the United States Army. Gilbert was assigned to Fort Sill Oklahoma with Temporary Duties from Texas to Panama. 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 where he began his career 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 has remained in private practice since that time.

Gilbert went on to open The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm in 2008. He has been located on the courthouse square for over 30 years.
