Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan announces the appointment of Serenity Trevino, to serve as an Assistant County Attorney with the Environmental practice group.

Trevino, a Texas City native, earned her juris doctorate from South Texas College of Law Houston in 2018. She also studied abroad in Valetta, Malta and took a course taught by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“I participated in the County Attorney’s internship program during law school and really enjoyed my experience,” said Trevino. “I wanted to work for the County Attorney because this office is dedicated to enforcing environmental laws and regulations to keep our community safe.”

The Environmental practice group specializes in the enforcement of environmental laws and related County development regulations and it represents the public’s interest by opposing the issuance and renewal of environmental permits if the permit would be detrimental to public health. The group also insures Harris County’s compliance with environmental regulations; represents the county in state administrative hearings; and coordinates with federal, state, and local stakeholders on environmental legislation, rules, and policies affecting the county and its citizens.

“It speaks volumes about the quality and growth of our internship program when we have one of our interns return to work for us,” said County Attorney Ryan. “Serenity established a great foundation for her law career with us, and is back to do great things in our environmental group.”
