Experience in general

Some call the squat white cube at the lower left the ugliest building in downtown Houston. Others call it the most dangerous
 
The Bob Casey Federal Courthouse Building houses the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, along with the local federal bankruptcy court. It also holds the offices of a few Fifth Circuit judges who live in Houston, including my former employer's chambers. 
 
I only spent one year (during 1980-1981) working in that ugly, dangerous building, but I've tried both jury and nonjury cases there ever since. It's fair to say that I know how to find my way there and I know what to do when I arrive. Ditto for the new Harris County Civil Courthouse on the opposite side of downtown.
 
I can certainly "talk the talk" about going to court to try cases to a conclusion, but I've also actually "walked the walk" on a regular basis. Although there are important disclaimers that you should also read before drawing any conclusions, the five subtabs above — in the lighter shade of yellow, beginning with "Trial experience" — will take you to very specific data about my experience over the past three decades of practicing law.
