Texas Legal Legends
Texas Legal Legends is a project of the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas. Its purpose is to memorialize the stories of many legendary lawyers who have practiced in Texas, and to use those stories to enhance the public’s understanding of the historical importance of lawyers and the importance of making a difference – not just a living. These Legends are examples of lawyers who have spent their professional careers serving others and taking on challenges that are much bigger than themselves.
