Frank R. Southers is well-qualified to write about the Texas Lawyer Disciplinary System because he served in San Antonio on the Grievance Committee for 10 years, the last 6 as Chairperson. Since then he has represented complainants, accused lawyers, and witnesses.
Certified as a Personal Injury Trial Specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, he has also filled many leadership roles, such as Chair of the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas and President of the San Antonio Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.
A graduate from St. Mary’s University with a B.A. in English and a graduate magnum cum laude from St. Mary’s University School of Law at age 22, Mr. Southers has also been named as a “Super Lawyer” by Texas Monthly Magazine.
Now, Mr. Southers has turned to writing fiction, especially about lawyers—with “The Grievance Committee—Book One” as the first in the series.
Although raised in San Antonio, Mr. Southers now resides in Austin with his wife, Dr. Linda R. Southers, PhD. and their two dogs.
