Colin Hobbs, San Antonio Attorney
B. Colin Hobbs graduated from Texas A&M University in 2007. He moved to San Antonio for law school and in 2010 he graduated with oral advocacy honors from St. Mary’s School of Law, having received the prestigious “Order of the Barristers” award (given to the top 10 advocates within a graduating class).
He worked as a felony defense attorney in Beaumont, Texas, as a prosecutor for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office and as a prosecutor for the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. During this time, he prosecuted misdemeanor and felony cases such as DWI, assault (domestic assault and non-familial), possession of marijuana and other controlled substances, theft crimes, Internet crimes against children, and sexually based offenses.
But San Antonio still felt like home to Mr. Hobbs and he knew that with Fernando Gireud’s experience in child support and immigration cases, the two could create a partnership that met a range of legal needs for clients. Gireud | Hobbs, PLLC, began in 2015.
Outside of work Mr. Hobbs enjoys running, golf and watching his Fighting Texas Aggies whenever possible.
