Julie Lugo

Committed to Justice.
Dedicated to Service.

Julie Lugo has a passion for serving the public and those in need. She has dedicated her career to giving a voice to victims here in Tarrant County. With over 10 years of experience as a criminal prosecutor, Julie has seen first-hand the hard work, fairness, and integrity our justice system requires. Her conservative values, strong work ethic, and commitment to justice have helped keep our community safe and she will continue to do so as our judge of the 372nd District Court.

As a Tarrant County assistant criminal district attorney currently assigned to the Special Victims Unit, Julie is the Internet Crimes Against Children prosecutor. She is responsible for prosecuting sexual predators who target children online. In addition to spending the last two and a half years working on crimes against children cases, Julie’s experience also includes working as a prosecutor in the Family Violence Unit. Julie has been responsible for closing hundreds of criminal cases and has participated in over 100 jury trials involving a wide range of crimes. Her trial experience includes capital murder, continuous sexual abuse of a child, aggravated sexual assault of a child, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated robbery, and assault family violence.

A judge’s decisions have a true impact on our lives and our public safety. Julie will continue the legacy of our strong judiciary in Tarrant County. She will be a fair and impartial judge dedicated to justice and protecting our community.

A native of Tarrant County, Julie grew up in Bedford. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. She earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence from Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock, graduating magna cum laude. While in law school, Julie served as an articles editor on Texas Tech Law Review and as the president of the Criminal Trial Lawyers Association.

Julie’s work with children goes beyond protecting them in the courtroom. She has volunteered with Camp Fire as well as served as a coach, tutor, mentor, and children’s ministry volunteer. Julie and her husband, Michael, have both devoted their careers to making Tarrant County a safer place for our families. Michael is a decorated combat veteran with over 25 years of public safety service. He is a lieutenant with the Fort Worth Fire Department, where he serves as the Bomb Squad Commander. Julie and Michael live in Fort Worth and attend Christ Chapel.
