Christine Del Prado is the Chief of the Public Integrity & Cyber Crime Division at the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office. Christine was born in Indiana and spent her childhood both there and in Virginia. Growing up, she loved being a cheerleader. She was also a competitive swimmer, baton twirler and pianist. She graduated from Indiana University with a B.S. in Business in 1981 and moved to San Antonio. Christine enjoys spending her free time with her husband and their 4 daughters.
Christine began her legal career as an Intern for the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, a position she held while attending law school. She was a member of her law school’s Board of Advocates and competed in many Mock Trial and Moot Court competitions. This earned her the Outstanding Advocate Award for the St. Mary’s School of Law class of 1988.
Following graduation from law school, Christine became an Assistant District Attorney. In 1990, she was teamed with another Assistant DA to prosecute a murder case. It turned out to be a successful prosecution and a successful pairing. The defendant was convicted, and Christine and her trial partner, Mario Del Prado, were married a year later. In 1991, Christine & Mario left the DA’s office and went into private practice.
Over the next 27 years, Christine and her husband built a strong criminal defense firm that focused on defending the rights of individuals accused of all types of crime, throughout South Texas. While working as a criminal defense lawyer, Christine was consistently recognized by her peers, and in periodicals, for her skills in criminal law. She was a member of the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and served on its Executive Board; she was a panel member for her district’s Grievance Committee of the State Bar of Texas; she served on the Board of the Rape Crisis Center; and she served a term as the President of her parish council.
In January, 2019, Christine returned to prosecution, under the administration of District Attorney Joe D. Gonzales, as the Chief of the Special Crimes Division.
After more than 33 years practicing law, Christine is ready and eager to move to the next level of service. She believes in justice, fairness, and efficiency. And if she is elected Judge of the 227th Criminal District Court, these are the core values that will guide her on the bench.
