Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP congratulates partner Ann Hennis on her appointment to the Texas Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee (UPLC) by the Texas Supreme Court.
Ms. Hennis has served as Chair of the District 11 Subcommittee for over 17 years, and is honored to accept this nomination to the State Committee. Organized in 1952 as a standing committee of the State Bar of Texas, the UPLC is charged with investigating and eliminating the unauthorized practice of law. In 1979, the Texas legislature amended the State Bar Act to require the Texas Supreme Court to appoint UPLC members. The Committee is comprised of nine lawyers, appointed for three-year terms. Committee Members provide their time and service free as a public service.
“I think Ann Hennis will be a true asset to the UPL Committee. We’re proud of her dedication to protecting Texas consumers and her willingness to serve in this capacity,” said Larry D. Grayson, Managing Partner of Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP.
Ms. Hennis has an active legal practice in the firm's Corpus Christi office, where she oversees administrative and personnel matters. She is also a member of the firm's Ethics Committee. During her career, she has successfully represented, on both the plaintiff and defense sides, numerous individual and corporate clients in lead- and local-counsel capacities. She has extensive experience representing a broad spectrum of industries, including trucking, insurance, security, and pharmaceutical companies, among others, and has defended various types of litigation in state and federal courts, including claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, refinery explosions, construction defects, oil field accidents, tortious interference with business relations, food contamination and equipment failures.
