Congratulations to KD&P associate, Morgan McPheeters, who was nominated and selected to serve as a member of the Advocates Committee Board of Directors for the Texas Trial Lawyers Association (TTLA). TTLA is a professional association that works to protect the 7th Amendment right to trial by jury and empower trial attorneys to best represent their clients—thereby making Texas a better, safer, and healthier place to live and work.
The Advocates Committee is composed of TTLA members who have been in the organization for 10 years or less and provides a means for TTLA’s younger members to participate in and shape TTLA’s objectives. As a Board Member, Morgan will serve a three-year term and will work to further TTLA’s objectives through legislative support, TTLA PAC support and fundraising, membership recruitment, and women’s events.
Last week, KD&P was proud to present argument in two different cases before the Texas Supreme Court. Peter Kelly led off, presenting argument on behalf of the Petitioner in Steven Painter, et al. v. Amerimex Drilling I Ltd., and Kirk Pittard followed, presenting argument on behalf of the Respondent in SCI Texas Funeral Services Inc. v. Cody Nelson. Peter’s argument can be viewed here, and Kirk’s argument can be viewed here.
