A Frank Lawyer
I’ll never forget the day years before the summer of ‘71, where at one of those Sunday lunches, Uncle Wilbur told this man how in downtown Dallas, Texas on a sunny, clear day, God gave literally an “audible” call to him…”Wilbur go preach”. I can hear the next words from Uncle Wilbur as though spoken today, “Frankie I heard those words as you hear me right now”. I pursued a journey to be a lawyer with a commitment to a call on my life, with a fervor and bent to serve. For nearly 3 decades I answered that call as a steward bound dutifully, professionally, competently, passionately and in the Garemore matter, sacrificially, to discharge faithfully the responsibilities set before me. Whether to accomplish the benefit desired by the client in a deal of economics, business or realty, or stand in the gap to protect a client’s interests on a controversial stage, my mind, heart, soul and constitution was bent for the client. A man working and paying taxes since 13, and able for decades to make a living without agenda of personal gain, never worries over or cares about money. A man answering God’s call on his life, is not a man given to the temporal and unsatisfying gain of this world.
