Texas Watch hosting event Oct. 26 at Plaza Club in San Antonio
Texas Watch recently selected San Antonio attorney Frank Herrera Jr. of The Herrera Law Firm to be its guest of honor at its Champions of Justice Luncheon in October.
“I am honored to be chosen by Texas Watch as guest of honor at its Champions of Justice Luncheon in October,” Herrera said recently. “For more than two decades, Texas Watch has been an important advocate for injury victims. I share their values and have been fighting for justice throughout my career for more than five decades.”
Founded in 1998, Texas Watch “is a non-partisan citizen advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that insurance companies and other corporations are accountable to their customers,” according to the organization’s website. This includes ensuring accountability through our court system, improving safety for workers and advocating for reform in the insurance marketplace to ensure meaningful coverage at a fair price.
Along with being selected as the guest of honor at the Texas Watch luncheon, attorney Herrera was recently named this year’s recipient of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF)’s President and General Counsels Award at its 50th Anniversary San Antonio Awards Gala, which will be held on Sept. 28.
About attorney Frank Herrera Jr.
A graduate of St. Mary’s University undergraduate program and law school, attorney Herrera has been practicing law in Texas since 1967. He founded his own law firm in 1983 and has served on many local and national organizations, including MALDEF, The New American Alliance, and the St. Mary's University Alumni Association and Central Catholic High School. Herrera’s two sons, Javier and Jorge, followed their father’s path and became attorneys who practice law at The Herrera Law Firm.
“Our family remains committed to standing up for the rights of injury victims in Texas,” Herrera said. “Awards like the one from Texas Watch are an honor, but that’s not why we do the work we do. I became a lawyer because I strongly believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, especially when someone didn’t do anything to cause their injury.”
The Texas Watch Champions of Justice Luncheon will be held Oct. 26 from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Plaza Club, 100 West Houston St., 21st Floor, San Antonio, Texas. To register for the event or for more information, visit the Texas Watch website.
