Nico LaHood serves as the Criminal District Attorney for Bexar County. Bexar County’s seat is San Antonio, Texas, the second-most populous city in Texas and the seventh-largest city in the United States.

Nico is a life-long resident of Bexar County and a graduate of Central Catholic High School. After high school graduation, Nico attended St. Mary’s University where he earned his B.A. in Finance and Financial Services, and went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s Law School. He chose to remain in the San Antonio community where he has worked as a practicing attorney for 11 years. As an attorney, Nico has been a special prosecutor for Bexar County, Wilson, Karnes, and Medina Counties, a State District Court Magistrate Judge and a defense attorney. While practicing law Nico met his wife Davida. They have been married for eight years and have three children, Maya, Michael, and Leah.

Nicholas “Nico” LaHood was sworn-in as Bexar County’s Criminal District Attorney on January 1, 2015. Born and raised in San Antonio, LaHood has always had a spirit to serve. As a young boy, LaHood remembers going to work with his father, Michael LaHood Sr., who is a licensed attorney and former judge.

“I just knew my Pop helped people,” said LaHood. “He gave people advice and they really respected him. I just wanted to be like my Pop. He was my hero and he still is.”

LaHood graduated from Central Catholic Marianist High School and attended St. Mary’s University, where he earned his B.A. in Finance and Financial Services. He went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from St. Mary’s School of Law. LaHood remained in San Antonio, where he worked as a criminal defense attorney for twelve years.

LaHood recalls in 2010 discussing with colleagues about how the system was broken, and how different things should be.

“I believe it was a purpose-driven calling to be District Attorney,” said LaHood. “I’m absolutely passionate about it.”
Since becoming Bexar County’s top prosecutor, District Attorney LaHood has re-vamped the Pre-Trial Diversion Program, created a Child Abuse Unit, Domestic Violence Task Force, and a Conviction Integrity Unit within his office. District Attorney LaHood believes in the Restorative Justice Model for non-violent offenders, which is defined as “bringing together the victim, offender, and community to repair relationships.”
