Laura Nodolf

District Attorney
Laura Nodolf

Mrs. Laura A. Nodolf is the District Attorney for Midland County, Texas. Laura grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas. She received her undergraduate degree from Schreiner University in 2000 and her Juris Doctorate from Texas Tech School of Law in 2003. While in law school, she found she had a passion for the pursuit of justice.
From law school, she joined the Midland County District Attorneys Office where she quickly established herself in the legal and law enforcement communities. She has tried over a hundred jury trial with substantial success. In addition to managing a complex and challenging docket, Laura maintained office management responsibilities and served as the First Assistant District Attorney for a period of 6 years. It was during this time that she represented Midland County in a collaborative project with Dallas, Tarrant and Travis Counties to develop a software package specifically for prosecutors. The application allows for District Attorney Offices to become paperless and offer discovery digitally to defense counsel. In addition to her legal work, she instructs for the Texas District and County Attorneys Association, the Permian Basin Law Enforcement Academy, and other agencies.
Upon announcement that the sitting District Attorney would not seek re-election, Laura decided to run for the position. She was subsequently elected and was sworn in as District Attorney on January 1st, 2017. Since taking office, Laura has worked diligently to change the way that criminal justice is viewed in the community. It is her sincere desire that the criminal justice system be used as a tool to help those who are willing to accept responsibility for their crimes and desire rehabilitation and to incarcerate those who pose the greatest risk to our society. She has spent her time working with local agencies, community partners, and the commissioners to educate individuals and work towards her goal. As a result, Midland County has funded a Drug Court. She looks forward to continuing her work with partners in criminal justice to constantly evaluate the criminal justice system in Midland to ensure that we are truly seeking justice in all cases.
Additionally, Laura remains active with the law enforcement community. She recently participated in an online operation where thirty seven individuals were arrested for soliciting a child younger than 17 years of age for sex or agreeing to meet a thirteen year old for sex. This operation was the largest of its kind in West Texas. Outside of the operation, Laura continues to work with law enforcement on a daily basis through training and by offering legal assistance.
