This famed Texas attorney was born on Feb.16, 1941 in Austin, Texas and was reared in this more liberal area of the Lone Star State. He attended the University of Texas and graduated from the University of Texas Law School in 1965 at the age of 24 and was admitted to the Texas State Bar that same year. His first mentor was his father, but he also credits Joe Binion, Frank Knapp, Joe Moss, and Percy Foreman for molding and shaping his understanding of the law.

The Life And Career Of Texan Attorney Dick DeGuerin

The initial years of his legal career were spent as a member of the Houston district attorney's staff. This changed when he left the prosecutorial side of law and moved into criminal defense. In 1971, he was next recruited by the renowned Percy Foreman. Foreman was well known as the attorney who defended Jack Ruby. DeGuerin opened his own law practice in 1982 and has never looked back. Today, he ranks among the top 10 criminal defense attorneys in Texas. He has often credited his working association and work with Percy Foreman as being most influential in his law career. He was Outstanding Criminal Defense Lawyer of the Year for the State of Texas in 1994.

DeGuerin does not shy away from publicity or controversial cases. Most of the cases that he accepts have garnered more than a small share of headlines and tabloid coverage. While he is one of the most powerful and influential attorneys in Texas, he also does pro bono work if he feels that he is the best man for the job and feels that the people really need his help. When asked about his altruistic side he will tell you that the people needed him and that the cases are very gratifying.
