Stephen Jackson is a Conroe based attorney who has practiced criminal, family, and general civil litigation law since 1992. In 2018, he represented Marissa Maalouf in the custody fight this website centers around.
"...we all go way back here."
Jackson is well-known in Conroe and Montgomery County– in fact, he was born there and graduated from Conroe High School in 1985. He returned to the area after college and opened his own legal practice in 1992. It’s not surprising he goes “way back” with Montgomery County Judge Suzanne Stovall. Stovall presided over Tarek Maalouf’s child custody fight, and referenced her history with Jackson during the trial.
Jackson also has an interesting relationship with another Montgomery County Judge. In 2010, Kara L. Moore, a former Montgomery County resident, filed a lawsuit seeking 17 years in back child support, medical insurance, and a DNA test from 418th District Court Judge Tracy Gilbert. Moore alleged that Gilbert was the father of her 17-year-old son and that Judge Gilbert had never formally acknowledged the boy or paid child support. You can read the full story here:
