The speaker for this course is Larry McDougal, a private practitioner in Houston. Attorney Larry McDougal previously served as a police officer, a sheriff's deputy, a prosecutor and a municipal judge. His extensive insights into police procedure and the other side of the criminal justice system have made him all the more effective as a defender of the accused. He draws on that experience to confront the government's allegations and hold law enforcement accountable. He knows how to challenge physical evidence and forensics, witness accounts, traffic stops, search warrants and all facets of the prosecution's case. Larry McDougal, Sr., won the President's Award from the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association in 2009. He was elected to the Board of Directors of the State Bar of Texas in 2012 and teaches legal ethics to lawyers around the state. His statewide reputation is based on outstanding results for his clients and the trial skills necessary to back up a negotiating position. He received his law degree from South Texas College of Law (J.D., 1990) and his undergraduate degree from the University of Houston (B.A., 1987). A more extensive biography for Mr. McDougal may be found at his firm's website.
