“As one of the most highly regarded appellate lawyers in the country, there are few with the experience and expertise that Jeff will bring to General Counsel’s office,” said Governor Abbott. “His extensive legal background, combined with his profound understanding of the Constitution, make him the ideal person to fill this role. I look forward to working closely with Jeff, and I thank him for his commitment to public service for the people of Texas.”
