Mr. Jefferson will take the reins of the 3,300-member professional group in 2006 at the end of the term of current president Mary Belan Doggett.

As a partner who has worked at Haynes and Boone for more than eight years, Mr. Jefferson has extensive trial experience throughout South Texas, where he has amassed a record of more than 50 jury verdicts. He has been board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law since 1990, but his most recent trial practice focuses on business litigation.

Mr. Jefferson was inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2004, is in his second term as president of Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, has served as area vice president of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel, and has served on the board of the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.

He received his law degree from the University of Texas in 1984 after taking his undergraduate degree from Rice University in 1981.
