Texas Lawyer's Creed

The Texas Bar Foundation encourages all lawyers to remember the importance of maintaining the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. In 1989, the Supreme Court of Texas and the Court of Criminal Appeals adopted the Texas Lawyer’s Creed. This mandate for professionalism is printed and distributed to attorneys and the public by the Texas Bar Foundation. Take time to view the Texas Lawyer’s Creed.
