In 221 Texas counties, a county attorney is elected for a four-year
term. In 33 counties, there is no county attorney, so an elected
criminal district attorney performs the duties of county attorney.
Their duties vary depending on whether the county has a district
attorney. If there is no district attorney, the county attorney
represents the state in all civil and criminal cases in both the district
and county courts. If there is a district attorney, the county attorney
is responsible for cases in the courts below the level of the district
attorney. The county attorney also acts as legal advisor for the county.
