Summary

Internationally-acclaimed author and litigator David Barranco graduated with honors from the University of Texas’ Plan II Program in 1994 and from UT’s Law School in 1997. Based in Alamo Heights, Texas, David helps artists, writers, investors, designers, and other innovators reap (and retain) the financial rewards from their original creations. In 1993, David was named UT’s most outstanding liberal arts student; in 1997 he won the Willie Morris Award, which recognizes a superlative “call to intellectualism, vigorous defense of civil liberties, and overall pursuit of excellence.” After covering Microsoft's antitrust trial for the London Sunday Times, Mr. Barranco began his legal career clerking under Chief U.S. District Judge Hayden W. Head, Jr. in Corpus Christi. On the basis of David's subsequent courtroom victories, AVVO Legal characterized him as a “superb” practitioner, (rated 10/10), and the National Association of Distinguished Counsel welcomed David into the “Top 1%” of American trial lawyers. Mr. Barranco is especially proud of his SPLC Wall of Tolerance commendation -- an award affording him the opportunity to shake hands with a true American hero, Rosa Parks. David’s books have sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide. His most recent, called “brilliant” by Mensa Magazine, “thrilling” by Cambridge Day, and a “Blockbuster” by the Times of Malta, garnered a national literary prize from the IPBA. The MacArthur Foundation granted David a 2004 Post-Graduate Fellowship in Public Policy. In 2015, David was recognized as a Distinguished Alumnus and named one of Texas' "Top 10" family law attorneys. Mr. Barranco resides in Terrell Hills with his two strong sons, his two guard dogs, and his marvelous wife, Catherine.
