Can I...
Meet the Attorney General
Hi, I'm Greg Abbott, ... and this is our family dog, Oreo. We're glad that you decided to stop by and visit us here at the Attorney General's website. I hope that you'll explore the website, and learn something about what we do. You can even become an official "Jr. Attorney General."

You know, if you really met me in person, you'd notice something right away: I'm in a wheelchair. You know, I had a serious accident a number of years ago. When the doctor told me I would never be able to walk again, I'll be honest with you, it was pretty tough. Sometimes I just wanted to give up. I was faced with a very serious decision. But you know, at that moment, I decided I would not give up. I thought about all the things that I could do, inspite of what happened. And you know what? After a lot of hard work, I'm now the Attorney General for the entire State of Texas. What that means is that I'm the lawyer for you and for everybody else in this state. And I'll work to help you every single day. I know that sometimes you face tough things in your life, too. And I want to tell you that you can do anything you decide to do, IF you work hard, and you make good choices.

You know, if you've ever asked the question: "Can I do this...?" or "Can I do that...?" I'll tell you, the answer is yes, that you can. You can do anything you want to do if you make good decisions; if you don't give up; if you follow the rules; if you study hard; and if you take good care of yourself. Now why don't you take some time, look around our website, and see what the Attorney General does. There's lots to learn; some fun games to play; and, also a lot of things that you can enjoy. Thanks for coming to visit us, at the Attorney General's website.
