Congratulations are in order for the new President-Elect of the State Bar of Texas Buck Files of Tyler. Mr. Files will be the first criminal defense attorney to lead the State Bar.
Mr. Files won the election by a mere 481 votes out of the 21,210 votes cast. The win is another victory for the criminal defense bar and solo practitioners across the state following the defeat of the proposed ethics rules amendments earlier this year.
It is a cliche, but in an election like this, every vote counts. Thank you to everyone that voted (and campaigned) for Mr. Files.
