Joseph D. Brown
Joseph D. Brown, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas, was born in 1970. He pretty much grew up to the sound of “lawyer talk” all around. Brown came from a family of lawyers. His father, David Brown was a District Judge, and his Uncle Paul Neeley Brown was a U.S.S District Judge.
Brown got his bachelor’s degree in Government from the University of Texas at Austin in 1995. Then he decided to follow in the footsteps of his father and uncle. So, he received his J.D. from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.

Brown’s career started with the position of an associate attorney at the Dallas law firm of Cowles and Thompson, P.C. His job here allowed him to represent individuals and businesses in civil litigation. In 2009, he got elected as the Criminal District Attorney in the Grayson County District Attorney’s Office. For 17 years, Brown passionately served this position. President Donald Trump nominated Brown. In February 2018, he was sworn in as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas.
As the District Attorney for Eastern Texas, Brown oversees the prosecution of federal criminal offenses in 43 counties of Texas, comprising 3.5 million residents. That’s quite a responsibility, but fit for the position, Brown and his staff across six attorney district offices, take it in strides. Brown is also entrusted with the task of representing the U.S.S in all civil litigations in the Eastern District of Texas.
At the moment, all of Brown’s fights are against drug traffickers and violators. In 2019, he sentenced a Texas man to federal prison for drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas. But that’s not all.
As the Director of the Department of Justice’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces, Brown joined forces with Attorney General Maria Consuela Porras Argueta and Drug Enforcement Administration Assistant Special Agent Adam Cohen. They removed the narcotics Kingpin Suniga Rodriguez, commonly known as El Pocho. The joint efforts and collaboration of all the different establishments resulted in a successful prosecution of a criminal who tried to act above the law.
During his 17 years of work as the Criminal District Attorney of Grayson County, Texas, Brown prosecuted state law violators and represented the State of Texas.
Brown also had the chance to serve as the board member of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department between 2009 to 2014. During his tenure, he assisted in the administration of Texas’ juvenile prison and probation system and made sure that the inmates were not suffering from any kind of negligence.
For Brown, the law wasn’t a safe choice of career but something he loved. During his swearing-in ceremony, Brown said that prosecution and law enforcement is in his blood. Moreover, keeping communities safe is vital. Brown looked forward to making a difference in East Texas, and with his love for justice, he is already making an impact.
