Speaker - Vince Ryan, Harris County Attorney

"Contrasting City and County Government"

Vince Ryan has served as Harris County Attorney since 2009. The Harris County Attorney is the civil lawyer for Harris County, related governmental entities and their officials. But the ultimate clients are the people of Harris County.

A Houston native, Vince served in the ROTC while attending the University of Houston. Upon graduation he became an active duty officer in the United States Army, first serving in Europe and then volunteering for service in Vietnam. He returned to active duty for Operation Just Cause which ousted the dictator of Panama in 1990. After his service in Vietnam, Vince left active duty and attended the University of Houston Law School. While practicing law, Vince attended Rice University and received a Master’s Degree in History. He also remained in the Army Reserve and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.

Vince first began working in the County Attorney’s Office under Mike Driscoll and served as an Assistant County Attorney and First Assistant County Attorney from 1981 to 1987. He left to begin three terms on Houston City Council in 1988. Following his Council service, Vince was appointed to the Board of the Panama Canal Commission which oversaw the Canal and its historic transition to Panama on December 31, 1999. During and following his service on the Panama Canal Commission, Vince was associated with several prominent Houston law firms and continued his community involvement, serving on various boards.

Vince is married to Pam Rodriguez; they have three sons. Vince is and has been involved in many community and non-profit organizations.
