I have been practicing law in Liberty County since 2006 when I began my career with my father, Carl Pickett, and uncle, Ed Pickett. I became an Assistant District Attorney under Mike Little in 2011 and was elected District Attorney in 2012. We have consistently ensured that justice is done for all defendants, victims, and citizens of Liberty County. Regardless of race, gender, social, political, or financial status we have treated everyone equally. We show mercy when mercy is warranted and we are steadfast when the facts demand.
Since 2011, compared to Hardin, Chambers, Polk, San Jacinto, Harris, Montgomery, and Jefferson counties we have the 2nd highest jury trial rate, the lowest dismissal rate at 12%, and we dispose of more cases within 90 days of filing than all others. Our dismissal rate of family violence cases is the lowest at 6%. We helped start the Liberty County Veteran’s Treatment Court, hired a Victim Assistance Coordinator, hired a gang investigator, who is also a field training officer with ATF. I have helped law enforcement seize over $3,200,000 worth of criminal assets which have been used to purchase necessary equipment to keep fighting crime to supplement your tax dollars. We initiated the Cognitive Thinking Program with the Probation Department and created a First Time Felon Diversion Program for non-violent offenders.
I am the only Criminal Board Certified Attorney living and practicing in Liberty County.
My wife and I are raising our three children to be good citizens. We are instilling in them good values and, like all parents, hope they learn from our mistakes. My wife and I are committed to each other, and I am committing to continuing the good work of the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office. You have a District Attorney’s Office you should be proud of, and as the leader of that Office it is my mission to make sure it continues that way. Vote to re-elect Logan Pickett for District Attorney.
