On June 22, 2020, I will be sworn in as the 50th President of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCDLA). Joining me in service to TCDLA will be 59 board members and officers from across the state. This will include 10 newly elected leaders. I am certainly biased, but I believe this is the most talented, eclectic, and motivated group of lawyers we have ever assembled to lead TCDLA. We will need every ounce of their contributions, as this is perhaps the most challenging period in our history.
