Congratulations to Advocate Capital, Inc. friend and colleague, Trey Apffel, on his recent election as president-elect for 2013 and Texas State Bar President for 2014. This hard-fought election actually resulted in a run-off with Mr. Apffel’s election confirmed by the State Bar of Texas (SBOT) just over two weeks ago.
Mr. Apffel has tirelessly served the citizens of Texas for over 30 years in a variety of practice areas including personal injury, workers’ compensation, wrongful death and insurance claims. He has served on the board of directors for the SBOT, a member of the Executive Committee and chaired the Legislative Policy Committee. He is a former member of the Commission for Lawyer Discipline, the College of the State Bar of Texas, a Texas Bar Foundation Life Fellow, and served on the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Trey is also a member of the Galveston County Bar Association and served as the organization’s president in 1996–1997. He is an associate of the American Board of Trial Advocates and a director of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
CONGRATULATIONS to Trey, the members of the Texas State Bar Association and the citizens of Texas on the election of an outstanding leader.
Senior Vice President
