Hunter Lewis Lends Expertise to Texas Family Law Foundation’s Legislative Team
Hunter Lewis spent a week in Austin at the start of the 85th session of the Texas Legislature working with the Texas Family Law Foundation’s legislative team reviewing draft legislation and meeting with state lawmakers on matters impacting the area of Family Law.
A longtime Foundation volunteer, this was the first time Hunter was selected to travel to the Capitol to serve as a “5-Day Chair,” where he spent a week working alongside the Foundation’s lobbying team meeting with legislators and working with legislative staff to revise and craft newly proposed legislation. He also helped in crafting position statements on proposed bills involving such issues as ending no-fault divorce, and changes to family violence laws, child custody schedules, guardianships, foreign law application, and other State Bar issues.
“It is of vital importance that our legislators understand the potential real world consequences to their decisions, especially on matters where significant concerns exist,” says Hunter. “I was honored to have been selected to help on this important project, and I am fortunate to practice at a law firm that shares the Foundation’s vision and its dedication to seeing that our lawmakers have a full understanding of the Family Law matters put before them.”
