Summary

Mr. Evans is also a standing member of the Texas Academy of Family Law and the Texas Family Law Foundation. Mr. Evans is a member of the Family Section of the Travis County Bar, Williamson County Bar Association, and the State Bar of Texas and has also been admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. Mr. Evans attended Austin College for undergraduate school completing his studies in business communications and graduated law school at Texas Wesleyan University (now Texas A&M School of Law) in just over 2 ½ years, and became licensed in May 1995. After becoming licensed, Mr. Evans worked as an assistant criminal district attorney with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and was literally thrown into the courtroom experience. As Mr. Evans recalls, “they hired me on a Wednesday and on that Thursday I was picking a Jury” which was one of many jury trials Mr. Evans participated in his career with the Tarrant County District Attorneys Office. During this time, Mr. Evans prosecuted such crimes as domestic violence, family violence, sex crimes against children, and other felony and misdemeanor crimes for nearly 5 years. During this time, Mr. Evans spent significant time working with children and protecting them against predators. In his tenure prosecuting sex crimes against children, Mr. Evans spent significant time working with children and preparing them for testimony. “I still have a drawer full of thank you cards”, Mr. Evans tells it. “There is nothing like the satisfaction that a child having gone through this kind of experience can look 12 people in the eye and know that someone finally believed them.” At the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Evans was nicknamed “scrapper” for his scrappy litigation style.
