How Have You Been Involved in the DBA?
Haynes and Boone has a long history of involvement with the Dallas Bar Association. Young associates are encouraged to get involved with the DBA through a section and/or committee work. I’ve been active in the DBA since my first year. I have really enjoyed speaking to students through the Law in Schools program and taking advantage of the multiple networking and CLE opportunities. I am currently the Chair of the Antitrust & Trade Regulation Section and recently I became a Fellow of the Dallas Bar Foundation.
What Do You Like Most About the DBA?
I find the networking and CLE opportunities to be the most helpful.
What Drew You to Your Area of Practice?
After completing my first project as a 1L summer associate, I knew I wanted to be an antitrust lawyer. I was excited about the prospect of litigating against the government and being involved in “bet the company” litigation.
Most Rewarding Moment in Your Practice?
Winning my first jury trial as lead counsel.
What Makes You Most Proud of Being a Lawyer?
I’m proud that I get to practice with outstanding lawyers of high character who have the utmost respect for the profession.
