The Honorable Randall Slagle

judge Randall Slagle

Judge Randall Slagle is your Travis County Justice of the Peace in Precinct 2, serving northern Travis County. Judge Slagle was born and raised in Austin, Texas, spending most of his life living in Precinct 2. He attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he received a Bachelors of Business Administration in Management. After college, he attended law school at South Texas College of Law, and became licensed to practice law in Texas in 2006.

After law school, Judge Slagle was hired as an Assistant Travis County Attorney, where he handled all levels of misdemeanor crimes. Spending a large portion of his early legal career prosecuting cases in each of the Travis County Justice Courts, gave him a great understanding of how JP Courts work, and how everyday citizens are more likely to have dealings in the JP Court system than anywhere else.

While working at the Travis County Attorney’s Office, Judge Slagle served as the Chief Prosecutor over every Travis County Criminal Court at Law, including Travis County’s Domestic Violence Court. He has supervised and trained numerous attorneys and law students while working in that capacity. In 2008, Judge Slagle served as an Assistant Travis County District Attorney handling all levels of felony offenses in Travis County, Texas. He later served as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Maui County, Hawaii, where he was assigned to the Felony Violent Crimes Division. Handling a wide variety of cases at each of his past positions has truly made him a better lawyer and judge. He has learned that no two cases are the same, and in his previous career, he learned that the duty of a prosecutor is not to seek convictions, but to see that justice is done. Judge Slagle currently serves as Travis County Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2, in one of the largest and busiest Justice Courts in the state of Texas, where his duties include presiding over both civil and criminal matters.

Judge Slagle routinely guest lectures at the University of Texas Law School Criminal Defense Clinic, teaching valuable lessons to law students interested in practicing criminal defense law.
