Overview

My law practice was a general practice – and I never knew who or what was going to walk through our door next. A murder case, child custody matter, or some unsolved mystery. Some were minor cases – others were major cases that were to make new law in the State of Texas after review by some of the highest courts in the land. In writing this book, which is as much about what happened to some of my fortunate and unfortunate clients as happened to me – I try to tell their unusual stories in layman’s language and how their experiences with our legal system changed all our lives. The judicial process, whether it is criminal or civil in nature, can and does fundamentally change a person’s life. The parties involved may feel that justice prevailed or justice was denied in their case. The actions or in-actions of their legal counsel often make the difference between a just or unjust outcome. Our system of justice is not self-correcting – it is a never-ending struggle between the weak and the powerful; whether they are governmental agencies and large corporations.

Description

In 1973 when I started practicing law – the country was in anti-war mode, with widespread demonstrations. Most law graduates, including myself, did not want to work for the large law firms or corporations and certainly not for “the government.” We were an idealistic bunch – wanting to help the down trodden and helpless masses. The great anti-poverty movements were active and growing. I soon discovered that good deeds and free legal services do not pay salaries or office rent and had to settle down and try to earn a living and support myself, my family and my staff. My law practice was a general practice – and I never knew who or what was going to walk through our door next. A murder case, child custody matter, or some unsolved mystery. Some were minor cases – others were major cases that were to make new law in the State of Texas after review by some of the highest courts in the land. In writing this book, which is as much about what happened to some of my fortunate and unfortunate clients as happened to me – I try to tell their unusual stories in layman’s language and how their experiences with our legal system changed all our lives.

About the author

Bobby was born in San Francisco, CA, on September 3, 1944, to a waitress mother and mysterious father. Intent on a military career, Bobby enlisted in the National Guard while beginning his high school senior year. His plans for the future were suddenly cut short when he was jailed and criminally charged with his family’s deaths. After his release from jail, Bobby had to rebuild his life from scratch and worked his way through the University of Texas and Texas Tech School of Law, all the while supporting a wife and daughter. Bobby graduated from Law School in 1973 having already passed the State Bar exam. He was admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1980. He soon established himself as a fearless trial lawyer in the State of Texas, unafraid to take on the establishment or its leaders in civil and criminal litigation. He made enemies in the legal profession, but his clients worshiped him. In the early 1990’s Bobby quit the law business to become a professor of law. He moved to Arizona and became certified to teach law and political science and was named Outstanding Business Faculty Instructor at Rio Salado College in 1999. In 2001 he was retained by the disgraced Arthur Anderson and Company to write an Ethics guide for their employees in Arizona. Bobby continues to write and teach law and paralegal courses for colleges in Arizona, as well as operate his Private Investigation Firm in Arizona that specializes investigating unsolved homicide cases. Currently, Bobby is busy writing a series of books under his "Bobby Trials" banner detailing his more controversial Texas trials and Arizona investigations cases. Renegade Barrister is his second book in that series,
