Civic Contributions

Giving back to our community.

Along with placing the needs of our clients first, we believe in giving generously of our time and talents by volunteering in the communities in which we live and work.

Attorneys at JDKG believe in giving generously of their time and talents, and are active in a number of professional and community causes. We have participated on committees of the State Bar of Texas, and in so doing gain early access to pending and recent changes to legislative and case law–knowledge we use to our clients’ advantage.

We serve as faculty members to help develop and mentor the next generation of legal experts.

Outside of the office our attorneys volunteer in a variety of ways, including protecting the quality of life in our communities, advancing the rights and opportunities of children, and promoting the needs of charitable organizations.
