HOUSTON – Mayor Lee Brown recently appointed Tom Hagemann, white collar criminal defense/business litigation/antitrust partner with the Houston office of Haynes and Boone, L.L.P., to Commissioner of the Police Officers’ Civil Service Commission.  As one of fifteen appointed Commissioners, Mr. Hagemann will conduct evidentiary hearings regarding appeals by Houston police officers for alleged violations of Departmental rules and regulations. 
This commission came into existence on January 1, 2002 as a part of plan to create a specific group to focus on midlevel violations instead of just the high level variety.  These types of violations used to be handled by a larger commission that oversaw all of Houston’s civil service groups, addressing violations in police, fire and other departments. The new commission will focus only on police issues of the midlevel size.
Before entering private practice, Mr. Hagemann was an assistant U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles, California.  He was nominated for the John Marshall Award for his work on United States v. Amers, et al., the largest police corruption case in the history of Los Angeles.  Mr. Hagemann is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the State Bar of California, Houston Bar Association and the American Bar Association.  He earned his bachelor’s degree from Rice University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and a law degree from Yale University. 
Haynes and Boone L.L.P. is an international law firm with nine offices in Texas, Washington, D.C. and Mexico City providing a full spectrum of legal services to clients around the world. With more than 425 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by the National Law Journal.  The AmLaw Tech Magazine Scoreboard ranked Haynes and Boone first in law firm technology in 2001, and the firm has recently been recognized as one of the 25 “Best U.S. Law Firms at Which to Work” (Of Counsel, 2000) and one of the “Best Corporate Law Firms in America” (Corporate Board Member Magazine, 2001).
