After nearly five years as the Assistant District Attorney (ADA) Rumaldo Solis Jr. has turned in his resignation letter. At the end of August, Solis will no longer serve as prosecutor in the 229th District Court in San Diego.

Solis, a native of San Benito, Texas decided that he would try his hand at private practice along side his wife and father-in-law in Alice.

Solis is and will continue as the City of San Diego attorney.

Before Solis joined the Duval County District Attorney's Office, he was a former ADA in Jim Wells County, served four years in that position, and had previously served in the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office.

Solis graduated from the University of Texas at Brownsville, before going on to receive his J.D. from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in Houston in May 2004.

Solis said he didn't intend to be a prosecutor, but when his friend helped him get a job in the Cameron County District's Attorney's Office he fell in love with the work.

Starting in September, Solis will focus on all aspects of law that he encounters even visiting Duval County.

Solis will have a new office, but he will still be dedicated to law and the justice system.
