Alvarez judicial robe Justice statue_edited.jpg

Hello, I'm Judge Mary Lou Alvarez

I am a proud Native Texan and your current judge of Bexar County’s 45th District Court. In 2017, I decided to run for office after years of working in private practice and representing victims of domestic violence during divorce, custody, and protective order litigation.

Prior to my work in private practice in San Antonio, I worked as a staff attorney at Texas RioGrande Legal Aid.   

I earned my undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management from Stanford University, and after two years working as a manufacturing engineer, attended law school at Seton Hall.

 I am a proud mother by choice and wish to continue to not only serve my community but serve it using Justice without exception.
