The Texas Lawyer’s Creed

A Mandate for Professionalism

I am a lawyer. I am entrusted by the People of Texas to preserve and improve our legal system.

I am licensed by the Supreme Court of Texas. I must therefore abide by the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, but I know that Professionalism requires more than merely avoiding the violation of laws and rules. I am committed to this Creed for no other reason than it is right.
