Shelly Marshall (’97) was recently named Assistant Attorney General of the Year, her second time to receive the designation. Marshall is an assistant attorney general for the Child Support Division’s Lubbock office, which covers 16 counties and is currently handling 13,000 cases. Marshall was honored as the region’s top attorney by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott because of her excellent track record of enforcing child support obligations and her innovative use of technology to increase productivity and efficiency at the agency.
Marshall graduated from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1997 and has been an attorney with the Attorney General’s Office since 1998. In 2009, she was appointed managing attorney of the Lubbock child support office. In her current position, Marshall represents the State of Texas in proceedings to establish paternity of children from unmarried parents. She also works to institute and enforce court orders requiring parents to provide children with medical care and child support.
Marshall was one of ten assistant attorneys general chosen to receive the designation. Honorees were selected based on recommendations from their peers and supervisors. All recipients demonstrated a desire to serve Texas families and go beyond normal duties in assisting Texas children across the state.
