Austin Brakebill understands the importance of meticulous reading and planning for all of his cases. Through his experience as the Editor-in-Chief of SMU’s Annual Texas Survey, Austin received a comprehensive understanding of the most relevant issues in litigation. He maintains that discipline in his practice, ensuring his clients benefit from cutting-edge legal arguments. Austin couples this with a background in philosophy to craft persuasive arguments for his clients.
When Austin is not at the office, he is usually at the American Airlines Center watching his Dallas Stars dominate on the ice rink. Before puck drop, he enjoys reading science fiction and playing his stereo loudly, according to his wife.
