    The moderator for this course is Thomas J. Williams, Haynes and Boone, L.L.P.  Tom Williams has served as a trusted counselor to companies, individuals, lawyers and his community for more than 30 years. Throughout Tom’s career, leaders in his community and profession have turned to him for advice, counsel, and service. Before the age of 30, Tom served as vice-chair of the City of Fort Worth Charter Review and Revision Commission. In 2007 and again in 2010, the Supreme Court of Texas appointed Tom to the Board of Disciplinary Appeals, a statewide judicial body of twelve attorneys appointed by the Supreme Court to hear certain lawyer discipline cases, and Tom served two terms as chair of the Tarrant County Bar Foundation. In 2006, the Tarrant County Bar Association honored Tom with its Professionalism Award, given each year to a Tarrant County lawyer who best “exemplifies, by conduct and character, professional traits that others in the bar should try to emulate.” An extensive biography for Thomas J. Williams may be found on his firm's website.
