County Court

The County Judge is the most visible official in county government.  Often thought of as the county's chief executive officer, the Texas Constitution vests broad judicial and administrative powers in the County Judge, including serving as the presiding officer of the county's policy-making body, the Commissioner's Court, which is responsible for budgetary matters and administrative duties for Gonzales County.

The County Judge also handles widely varying judicial matters such as conducting hearings for probating the estate of a deceased person, establishing guardianships for incapacitated persons and minors, and presiding over civil commitments to mental hospitals.  The County Judge is also responsible for emergency management, calling elections, and representing Gonzales County in many administrative functions.

PLEASE NOTE:the County Judge and court staff cannot give legal advice or answer legal questions.  If you need legal advice, you should consult with an attorney.

WARNING:  do not attempt to contact the Judge by mail, e-mail, phone, or in person about any pending criminal or civil matter.
