Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Weber Named First Assistant AG

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has named my friend Andrew Weber (pictured) First Assistant Attorney General.  He replaces Kent Sullivan, who Governor Perry recently appointed to the Fourteenth Court of Appeals.

Aside from his legal skills, Andrew is a heck of a nice guy.  He is well known to appellate lawyers throughout the state because of the three years he spent as Clerk of the Texas Supreme Court. 

Congratulations, Andrew!  Well done.
