Marcia Weiner, Judge at Bexar County, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the Judiciary.
After Ms. Weiner’s father passed away when she was three years old, her mother raised her to make the world a better place. Ms. Weiner grew up to be a justice of the peace in Precinct 2 of Bexar County, Texas, from 2000 to 2009, and is very proud of the positive change she has effected in her community. During her term as judge, she focused less on fines and more on getting children into counseling and meaningful community service. One of her constant points has been to empower mothers and to raise their self-esteem.
Ms. Weiner set out to improve the world as a teacher before entering the law. She earned a BA in history and English with a minor in education from St. Mary’s University in 1965 before going on to the university’s School of Law to earn a JD in 1970. Fresh from law school, Ms. Weiner joined the San Antonio Housing Authority as an attorney-adviser from 1971 to 1984. That year, she was appointed chief counsel of the authority, where she served until 1997.
As a recipient of an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, Ms. Weiner has accrued numerous honors, and was named as a 2014 Woman Inspiring Change by the Harvard Women’s Law Association, the Harvard Law School, and the Law and International Development Society. She was an honoree at the 2010 International Black and White Ball, and a recipient of a 2008 Legion of Honor from Precinct 2 of Bexar County. In 1965, Ms. Weiner also earned a Lifetime Teacher’s Certificate.
